Retired professor donates to Eureka

EUREKA (AP) – A retired history professor has given Ronald Reagan’s alma mater, Eureka College, $3 million – the largest gift in the school’s history.

The school says it will use the money from Richard Sanders to build an addition onto a building that houses science and computer labs and classrooms.

The money was announced Saturday at the school’s commencement. Eureka College is in Eureka, east of Peoria.

The college will name the addition Sanders Hall. Its total cost is about $5 million. A groundbreaking is planned for May 2014 and it should be completed by May 2015.

Sanders previously donated an undisclosed amount to build the Ivy Hall residence hall atrium lobby. He also has an endowed annual scholarship for history or political science students.
