OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) - The State University of New York at Oswego has received a $7.5 million donation from the estate of a couple who operated a central New York business.
SUNY Oswego officials announced Friday that the gift is the largest single donation in the 153-year-old history of the college.
The donation from the estate of Nunzio and Lorraine Marano, of Scriba (SKREYE’-buh), will establish an endowment used primarily to fund scholarships.
Nick Morano died in 2002. He owned Marano Vacuum Cooling and Sales in Scriba, just east of Oswego.
