FAYETTE, Iowa (AP) — A former student has donated $1.65 million to help restore the cheerleading squad at Upper Iowa University.

Officials at the northeast Iowa school say Diane Harms has established the Diane Kinkead Harms Cheer Endowment with $1.5 million and donated an additional $150,000 for immediate program support. The money will pay for a full-time head coach and operational expenses, with a goal of forming a competitive cheer team

Harms and her husband, Steve Harms, graduated from the university in 1973. He'd played football there for four years, and she was a cheerleader there for three years.
