EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University is creating a scholarship to honor its president after she turned down another raise.

The Lansing State Journal (https://on.lsj.com/1lXeoZB ) says it’s the eighth time in 10 years that Lou Anna Simon has rejected a pay raise. Instead, trustees will endow a scholarship in the names of Simon and her husband, Roy.

The scholarship will go to a student who, like Simon, is the first in the family to attend college.

Simon’s annual salary is $750,000. She received a $125,000 bonus in 2013 but donated it back to the university.
