K-State Gets $5 Million Donation

Associated Press - December 13, 2013 6:06 am

Kansas State University will provide financial and management advice for farmers and ranchers in the struggling agricultural economy.

Kansas State University is getting a $5 million donation from the estate of a retired U.S. Air Force colonel.

The university says the gift from Manhattan resident Wayne McIntosh will go to construction of the university welcome center and multicultural initiatives.

McIntosh attended K-State and also worked for the university. The university says he died in 2012.

McIntosh earned a bachelor’s degree in general sciences from the university in 1938 and a master’s in education in 1939. He served in the Air Force during World War II and retired as a colonel after 30 years. He worked for Kansas State’s Division of Continuing Education after his Air Force retirement.
