Alum gives $100,000 to K-State

By The Mercury

It’s not every day that you hear someone’s bucket list includes a major gift to a university.

But in the case of George Jones, Wichita, a gift to Kansas State University was a top priority — and his contribution of $100,000 to the university’s department of geology is helping renovate a 50-year-old laboratory space into a modern geochemistry teaching lab.

A native of Simpson, Jones graduated from Kansas State University’s College of Arts and Sciences in 1948.
