About

The Heilman Center and Louis A. Sorrentino '54 Gymnasium renovation and expansion projects are underway, thanks to outstanding donor support. Special thanks to teammates Mike Rhoades ’95 and Jason Zitter ’96 for their generous $100,000 challenge match. Will you join them with your gift today?

Gifts to this project will help build facilities that inspire our student-athletes, including locker rooms for men's basketball, women's basketball, and volleyball; team spaces; officials' spaces; and a state-of-the-art recruiting lounge.

Provide a locker for a student-athlete and be recognized with your name on a plaque on the locker in the new Women's or Men's Basketball space or renovated Volleyball space! Make a one-time gift of $2,500 or set up a recurring gift totaling $2,500 over the span of 1-5 years (e.g., $500/annually or $50/month for five years).

Thanks to a network of class volunteers—organized by J.D. Byers ’05— an additional $50,000 is being raised to name the Men's Basketball Locker room in honor of Coach, Brad McAlester. Any donors who name Coach McAlester as the honoree on the giving form will have their name included on a plaque in the new dedicated space. The deadline to contribute is September 15.

Contact Jordan Evangelista at evangeli@lvc.edu or 717-867-6324 to discuss opportunities to name individual lockers or additional spaces in the facility through multi-year pledges. * All pledges can be paid over 1-5 years.

Men's Locker Room Named in Honor of Coach Brad McAlester


Mike Rhoades ’95 and Jason Zitter ’96 started the McAlester project by creating a $100,000 dollar-for-dollar challenge to support the new athletic facility and locker room. A network of class volunteers—organized by J.D. Byers ’05—stepped up to raise an additional $50,000 in order to name the Men’s Basketball Locker room in Coach Brad McAlester’s honor.

Recently, a group of alumni athletes had the honor of FaceTiming Coach McAlester to let him know the locker room would be dedicated in his honor.

Any donors who name Coach McAlester as the honoree on the giving form will have their name included on the plaque in the Men’s Basketball Locker Room. The deadline to contribute is September 15.

Brad McAlester is entering his 28th season as head coach of the Lebanon Valley College men’s basketball team in 2021—22. The program’s all-time winningest coach, McAlester (397-304) led the Flying Dutchmen to the postseason in 18 of the past 27 seasons. During his LVC tenure, McAlester has coached nine All-Americans, 36 all-conference players, and a Division III National Player of the Year.
