Late priest gives Loras College more than $500K for scholarships

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Loras College has received more than half a million dollars for scholarships, left to the college by a priest in the Archdiocese of Dubuque who recently died.

The deceased priest and the executor of the estate have both remained anonymous.

The executor of the estate says the $589,275 comes from an inheritance the priest received, but the priest never believed the money was meant for him.

According to Loras President Jim Collins, the money will add to the $20 million in financial aid to students each year.
