HAYS, Kan. (AP) — A Hays couple has donated $1 million to Fort Hays State University to be used for scholarships.

The university announced the gift from Ed and Donna Stehno on Friday.

University President Edward Hammond says the money will mostly go to athletes but aren’t targeted to a particular sport.

Ed Stehno was a Fort Hays State professor in the Department of Education Administration and Counseling until he retired in 2004. Donna Stehno earned a degree from the university and was a school nurse.

The Stehnos’ three children set up the Stehno Family Scholarship Fund at Fort Hays State to celebrate the couple’s 50th wedding anniversary.
