EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) -- Emporia State University has received an anonymous gift of $200,000.

The university said in a release Thursday that the donor also gave the school nearly $200,000 on another occasion. Emporia State says the two donations will establish its Distinguished Business Scholar program.

Jennifer Denton, Emporia State Foundation vice president for stewardship and administration, said the same person is also making a planned gift to bring the endowed scholarship fund to $1 million.

The school is involved in a fundraising campaign to raise about $45 million. To date, the campaign has recorded gifts and pledges of nearly $20 million.
