Pittsburg State receives $1 million pledge
PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — The Kelce College of Business at Pittsburg State University has received a $1 million pledge toward its renovation and expansion project.
The university said the pledge comes from the Sunderland Foundation. It is part of a drive to raise money to create larger and more flexible classrooms for the business college.
The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports Kathleen Flannery, CEO of the Pittsburg State Foundation, said the school has raised more than half of the $18 million needed for the project. That includes a $3 million pledge from university alumni John and Susan Lowe.
Paul Grimes, dean of the business college, says the grant will help allow the college to offer the most professional and up-to-date facilities.
