Darbyshire Court

Join us in bridging the past to the present through the funding of a fully renovated basketball court in honor of legendary coach and mentor Lynn Darbyshire, who led Miami Middletown and the Ohio Regional Campus Conference to an on-going legacy of greatness.

In honor of the career and impact of Darbyshire, and to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of Miami Middletown Campus, the Board of Directors of the Miriam G. Knoll Foundation of Middletown, Ohio, have committed to $75,000 toward this project, provided that Miami can raise the other half of the funds.

The court will be redesigned, with new painting and finishing, bleachers to comply with ADA regulations, and portable backstops.

Every student, faculty member, or community member who walked through the halls of Miami Middletown will have been impacted by the work of Lynn Darbyshire. Help us honor such a deserving individual in retrofitting the gymnasium that will be used for future students and community members.
