LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University is receiving a $25 million donation from the Emma Eccles Jones Foundation.

The money will go toward the school's College of Education and Human Services.

The gift will be used to build an additional education and research building and to fund endowed professorships in early childhood education.

Jones is a philanthropist and former kindergarten teacher in Logan. She personally funded the construction of the current Emma Eccles Jones Education Building.

The university is planning a ceremony in April to celebrate the gift and honor the foundation for its support.
