Sunflower Bank donates $1M to Kansas Wesleyan

SALINA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Wesleyan University says it will use a $1 million donation from Sunflower Bank for a much-needed upgrade to its technology.

University President Matt Thompson says the donation will cover most of a $1.2 million contract to install a one-gigabit fiber network across the campus in Salina, including in residence halls. It will also provide infrastructure for the university to provide online courses.

Mollie Hale Carter, president and CEO of Sunflower Bank, said the technology upgrades will help students on campus and beyond Salina.

The campus upgrades are expected to be completed by December.

The Salina Journal reports ( ) Nex-Tech also will donate $150,000 to support construction of the Graves Family Sports Complex.
