WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A company that supplies components for the aircraft industry is committing $100,000 over five years to help Wichita State University develop a mentoring program.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1hcemJ ) the university will use the gift from TECT Aerospace to raise interest among public school students in careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

The mentoring program will be aimed at low-income youth and students of color from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Wichita State says the program will recruit professionals in the relevant fields to volunteer with mentoring and other activities.

The gift was made with help from The Glass Foundation, which supports philanthropic endeavors on behalf of Kenneth Glass and family, which owns the TECT family of businesses.
