MANHATTAN (AP) — A Des Moines, Iowa, couple have donated $1 million

to Kansas State University to help pay for a new building for the

College of Business Administration.

The school says its proposed building plan has 140,000 square feet of

space, with tiered classrooms, a large showcase lecture hall, labs and

an executive conference room.

Stephen Lacy graduated from Kansas State with a bachelor's degree in

accounting in 1976 and a master's in business administration a year

later. He is chairman and CEO of Des Moines-based Meredith Corp., which

has publishing and broadcasting offices across the U.S.

Cathryn Wiltfong Lacy graduated from Kansas State in 1979 with a

degree in dietetics and institutional management, and earned a master's

degree at Drake University in Des Moines in 1986.
