The president and chief executive officer of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is giving $2 million to his alma matter—the William Mitchell College of Law.
Stephen Bonner, a 1972 law grad, donated the money to the law school in St. Paul, Minn., with his wife, Lisa, the National Law Journal reports. Bonner obtained his J.D. in an evening program at the school and says it has been “the cornerstone of progress for me and for Lisa and for my family.”
The donation will establish the Bonner Distinguished Chair and Innovation Fund, which will be used to "advance innovation in the teaching of law," a press release says. A portion of the gift will also be used for scholarships.
