Forum Communications Co. Chairman William Marcil has donated $1 million toward a new journalism education initiative at Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Marcil is the fourth-generation family owner of the media company that owns The Forum and other newspapers, and radio and television stations in North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and South Dakota.
The Marcil family earlier made donations to North Dakota State University, Concordia College and the University of North Dakota.
School officials say the gift will establish the William C. and Jane B. Marcil Center for Innovative Journalism and will cover curriculum and technology upgrades to better prepare students for jobs after graduation.
