Missouri Western gets $474K from Kansas Couple's Estate
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Western State University has received a $474,000 gift from the estate of a northeast Kansas couple.
The money from the late Earl and Elmyra "Susie" Euler of Blair, Kan., will be used to provide about $19,000 a year worth of scholarships. The money will benefit graduates of Central High School in St. Joseph.
Missouri Western President Robert Vartabedian says the university is "extremely grateful."
Susie Euler attended Central High School and later Missouri Western when it was still known as St. Joseph Junior College. She and Earl Euler wed in 1945.
Besides running a farm, Earl Euler taught grade-schoolers, and Susie Euler worked for Doniphan County, Kan., Agriculture Conservation Services and a bank.
Earl Euler died in 2011 at 88. Susie Euler was 81 when she died in 2008.
