HAYS, Kan. (AP) - Two longtime Fort Hays State University donors are giving the school $1 million for scholarships.

The school said Thursday the donation from Don and Chris Bickle will benefit athletes and students from their hometown of Hoisington.

Fort Hays State University Foundation President and CEO Tim Chapman says the gift will help the foundation achieve a $12 million fundraising goal. The Power of One Scholarship Campaign is designed to recognize the service of former university president Edward Hammond.

Chapman says the gift will make a “huge impact for students.”

Don Bickle thanked Commerce Bank and his business partners through the years for providing the wherewithal to make the gift.
