Wichita Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a pickup truck Sunday morning.

Officer Charley Davidson says the discovery happened in the 1400 block of South Topeka in Wichita.

"We’re still determining all the details of what occurred; where she was at prior to being in that truck and things of that nature," Davidson said in a press briefing. "We’re all still currently investigating that and that’s why we are asking if the community has any information, call us."

A non-partisan research and policy group says most of the undergraduate programs in Kansas that prepare high school teachers received a D or F grade in the latest ratings. Newman University in Wichita is one of two Kansas schools that scored in the top 25 percent.

The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) rated Benedictine College in the 83rd percentile and Newman University in the 76th percentile for their secondary education programs.

Newman University officials have announced a public fundraising campaign to upgrade existing health science education facilities and to build a new science education center.

The campaign is designed to raise $30 million to build a new 51,400-square-foot science building. The project will allow for up-to-date technology and equipment, more research areas and “smart” classrooms, and simulation labs. The building will be named The Bishop Gerber Science Center in honor of a former bishop of the Diocese of Wichita.

You can see Glory Days in a very limited engagement Friday and Saturday at Newman University’s Jabara Black Box Theatre.
