Posted: Updated:


Chadron State College's foundation gets a big check to help with scholarships.
The foundation received a $500,000 scholarship gift from Frances Hess Richards this week.

The money will be added to the existing scholarship established by Frances and her husband Wilber Richards in 1995.

Richards lives in Scottsbluff and has a history of being a generous donor to CSC.

She's given $30,000 in annual scholarships, along with establishing the Frances Hess and Wilbur Richards Endowment for Elementary Education majors.

Richards says she still enjoys the college and appreciates the hospitality when she visits.

The foundation's executive director Connie Rasmussen says they appreciate Richards' support of students with such a generous contribution.
