MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) - Southern Arkansas University has received more than $1 million to support its new engineering program.

The university says Edna Cook Norvell made the gift because of her positive experience she had while attending Magnolia A&M, which is now SAU. The money will create an endowment to fund scholarships for students in the school’s engineering program.

The university created the engineering program in the fall of 2014. This fall, about 200 students are declared engineering majors.
