Washburn University has received a $1.4 million-dollar donation for athletic scholarships.
The money comes from the estate of Dorothy Reichart.
Her late husband, Jerry Reichart, was a lineman on the Washburn football team who earned all-conference honors in 1949. He was inducted into the Washburn Athletic Hall of Fame in 1987.
The Jerry W. Reichart Athletic Scholarship Fund was created about 20 years ago. With the latest gift, the fund now totals nearly $2 million.
