The university’s endowment association announced the gift Thursday from the estate of Stata Norton Ringle, a former dean of the School of Allied Health at the medical center and her husband, David Ringle. The couple lived in Leawood.
Stata Ringle was a faculty member and administrator at the medical center from 1962 to 1990. David was a research psychologist for the Midwest Research Institute.
The university says the gift will be divided between student scholarships at the School of Health Professionals, the Clendening History of Medicine Library and the Kenneth Spencer Research Library.
