PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- Pittsburg State University has renamed its nursing school for the mother of a prominent alumnus who donated $1 million to the nursing program.

KOAM-TV reports (http://bit.ly/19F5eF5 ) that the university renamed the school for the late Irene Ransom Bradley in a ceremony Tuesday. The Independence woman worked as a servant in a private home and died in 1996 at age 90.

The gift is from her son, Dr. Fay Bradley, a retired Independence physician who earned a bachelor's degree in biology at the southeast Kansas university in 1960.

Pittsburg State President Steve Scott said the announcement showed the importance of families. Scott said that while Irene and her husband didn't complete high school, they made sure their children finished, and four of the six received college degrees.
