SAN ANTONIO -

Saint Anthony Catholic School students celebrated Fiesta 2013 Thursday with a $1.5 million donation to their school by Rey Feo LXV Larry Benson.

Benson said he made the donation in an effort to contribute to the continued education of San Antonio's youth.

"Whatever they obtain in life someone can take away for them if they want to, but no one can take away an education," he said. "They can start over again if they need to and they can be successful."

The donation will go toward the construction of a new building.

The Benson family has been a part of the Saint Anthony's community for generations, and the school plans to name the new state of the art building in Benson's honor.

The naming ceremony for the building will take place next fall.
