West Gym Officially Has New Name At L-P

Posted by wlpo on January 28, 2014

The next time you go to a basketball game at L-P it’ll be inside the Dr. A.J. Sellett Memorial Gymnasium.

Several members of the late doctor’s family were able to attend Tuesday night’s official dedication.  Sellett was chosen as the gym’s namesake after a naming committee discussed people who have made an impact at L-P.  Superintendent Steve Wrobleski says the public opinion was overwhelming with Sellett getting the most votes by a wide margin.

Sellett was a member of the L-P School Board for over 20 years, serving three terms as board president.  He also was a volunteer team doctor for L-P athletics for over 40 years.

Sellett’s grandson Brian says his grandpa had three passions: his family, his medical practice and L-P High School.
