The Alton School District is honoring former Alton High School basketball coach Stan McAfoos. McAfoos died at the age of 78 in July of last year. The district is renaming the gymnasium at West Elementary School in his memory today.

That is the gym where McAfoos spent most of his coaching career. He began his career with the Alton School District teaching physical education and later became the head basketball and tennis coach, retiring as the Athletic Director. A small ceremony will mark the occasion at 3pm today.
