West Virginia Wesleyan College got $10,000 from the the Independent Oil and Gas Association, all to help improve their business school.
They had a check presentation Tuesday morning at their administration building.
The money will go toward building a lounge in the business department.
This isn't the first time IOGA has given money to the school, and officials said they hope it won't be the last.
"This is the beginning for amazing growth and prosperity, not just for West Virginia, but for the nation, and to accomplish that, we need quality employees. We have to have educated people, Wesleyan does a great job of doing that. If you want to evaluate a college, look at the success of their graduates, and Wesleyan has constant good students that turn out that work in our industry," said IOGA WV President, Dennis Xander.
Several of the donors are also Wesleyan business school graduates themselves.
