Bacone College receives $1 million gift

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- Bacon College plans to use a $1-million gift to create an endowment for nursing student scholarships.

The gift from the Lee Francis Bowler Trust is the largest single endowment ever received by the Muskogee-based university.

Bacone's nursing program was begun in the 1960s. College President Robert Duncan says that as the endowment grows, Bacone will be able to offer more scholarships each year.

Scholarships will be awarded this year to a freshman and a sophomore. Priority for the scholarships will be given to American Indian students.

The scholarships will be for one year and can be renewed for another year.
