Pak Fu King P ’19 Makes $2 Million Gift to The Centennial Campaign

Honorary trustee and Webb parent Pak Fu King has generously given $2 million, a transformational gift that will fund several Webb priorities. King has designated the largest portion of this gift to help renovate and upgrade Webb’s Les Perry Gymnasium, home to Webb’s basketball, volleyball, wrestling and badminton teams, as well as the McCarthy Fitness Center and the Jack Wertheim ’52 Team Room.

Since the gym was completed, and as the number of both boys’ and girls’ teams has expanded, the importance and use of the Les Perry Gymnasium has grown. In addition, Webb’s employees and their families utilize the facility for their fitness needs. The generous gift will help fund much needed improvements.

Updating and refreshing the main gym itself, the entrance lobby and public bathrooms, and the training facilities are all being studied. Additional team rooms, modernizing and updating the utilities as well as the finishes of interior spaces are also being contemplated.

The importance of physical exercise and team sports has always been a key element at Webb. In today’s competitive academic environment, it is essential that the opportunity to participate in athletics is available to each student, providing healthy balance and an understanding and enjoyment of exercise, teamwork and competition. King’s gift will allow Webb students the opportunity to pursue these activities in a refreshed and updated Les Perry Gymnasium.
