EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — A fine-arts degree program that Emporia State University says is unique in the country is being enhanced with a gift from the company that helped start the program.

The university partnered with Emporia-based Glendo Corp. in 2005 to establish a four-year degree program in engraving arts. Glendo produces a range of engraving tools that are sold in more than 100 countries.

Glendo is now donating $100,000 to equip a new classroom at Emporia State with a high-powered microscope, a custom bench and state-of-the-art pneumatic engraving tools. The gift will be celebrated Sept. 2 at the university's King Hall.

Emporia State said in a news release that eight students have graduated from the engraving program since it was launched in 2006, and six are currently enrolled.
