Most of us, from time to time, consider the legacy we’ll leave behind when we’re gone. We instill values in our children, we give of our time to make our community a better place, or we choose careers that make a difference in others’ lives.

Sometimes a legacy is left through giving. Bob and Arlene Hamilton, former Iowa Falls area farmers, gave money to establish Ellsworth Community College’s Hamilton Campus on the south side of town, and their gift to Hansen Family Hospital helped establish Hamilton Specialty Clinic. Students today are still benefiting from the Hamilton agriculture scholarships at ECC.
