On Thursday, January 26, 2023, St. Philip’s School and Community Center will unveil the newly renovated Miller Family Legacy Gym.
The ribbon cutting is an invitation-only event to honor the dynamic legacy of athletics at St. Philip’s and Carolyn & David Miller for their million-dollar contribution to St. Philip’s School and Community Center’s historic We Believe Campaign.
David Miller, co-founder and managing partner of EnCap Investments, is a two-time graduate of SMU, and vice chair of SMU’s Board of Trustees. While at SMU, David was the three-year starter and letterman on the varsity basketball team and member of the 1971-72 Southwest Conference Co-Championship.
This Ribbon Cutting and renaming of St. Philip’s legacy gymnasium, constructed in the 1950’s, is a major part of the expansion of the South Dallas organization’s athletics program that serves 700+ children and youth annually. Athletics is an extensive program for St. Philip’s, spanning more than 60 years, with notable alumni including Chris Bosh, Larry Johnson, and most recently, Nakeie Montgomery, who will present at the event. Montgomery, deemed one of the top lacrosse players in the country, is a recent graduate of Duke University and was recently drafted to play professional lacrosse with the Redwoods.
