SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake Community College leads the country in fundraising among community colleges.

A report from the Council for Aid to Education says the college raised more than $26 million in fiscal 2007, earning it the No. 1 spot nationally. That was $9 million more than the No. 2 school.

President Cynthia A. Bioteau says local businessman Larry H. Miller is due much of the credit for the school's fundraising success. Miller has been a longtime supporter, having financed the addition of a new campus in 2001.

Only Brigham Young University raised more money in Utah last year.
