$2.8M gift funds scholarships for KU Med students
The University of Kansas School of Medicine says a gift of more than $2.8 million will fund scholarships for medical students.  
The school announced the gift from the estate of Alton and Helen Knechtel, of Chula Vista, California. Alton is a graduate of Kansas State University, and Helen earned a music degree from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, and studied music at the KU.  
Alton Knechtel was born in Larned and Helen was born in Alma. He died in 1984 and she died in 2018.  
Dr. Mark Meyer, senior associate dean for student affairs at the School of Medicine, says the gift will help medical students whose average debt at graduation is more than over $180,000. ľAP
