ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Dixie State College received a large donation yesterday.

The school says the gift of $468,000 from the McDonald family is the first of its kind and will benefit the school's unrestricted scholarship endowment.

George Whitehead is the associate vice president of advancement and cultural arts and says the money will kick-start the schools campaign for $5 million in unrestricted scholarships -- those are scholarships available to any student with no conditions.

Kathleen Ann McDonald Capik handed over the money yesterday. The gift originated with the late Blair Wellington McDonald and his wife, Margaret, who served on various committees at Dixie and have contributed as much as $400,000 in past years.
