Veteran Gives $628,000 To K-State

KSAL StaffApril 28, 2014

A $629,000 gift has been given by the estate of a former Army officer to the Kansas State University military science program to provide more opportunities for future officers.

The university said Friday that the estate of Lt. Col. Albert E. Hylton III had provided the donation to establish a fund to be used by the head of the military science department, which includes training programs for future officers.

According to the university, the funds will be used to enhance training programs beyond what the Army provides for cadets in the reserve officer training program.

Hylton served in the Army from 1946 until 1980, earning two Bronze Stars among his military awards. His father served in World War I and graduated from Kansas State in 1916 after studying military science.
