Newman University gets $2 million from Fugate Enterprises
Wichita Newman University in Kansas has received a $2 million gift from Fugate Enterprises.
The university announced Wednesday that the gift will be used for the school's science, nursing and allied health professions program.
It's the latest of several donations to the Catholic school from Larry Fugate, owner of Fugate Enterprises, and his wife, Dana. Fugate Gymnasium and one of Newman's residence halls are named after the Fugates.
Larry Fugate said in a news release that the couple believes in the Catholic university, especially its contributions to health care professions in the Wichita region.
