Herb and Evelyn Lynk generously created endowed scholarships in each of their names; Herb upon his death on March 19, 1996 and Evelyn on March 30, 1999. Herb and Evelyn Lynk, longtime residents of Hardin County, were married on January 2, 1943, when Herb was home on leave from World War II service in the United States Navy. Evelyn worked at the JC Penney’s store in Iowa Falls for 28 years until her retirement in 1983. Evelyn has been an active volunteer for “Meals on Wheels,” the Iowa Falls Hospital Guild and her church. Her interest other than her family and her volunteerism has been golf. She passed away January 4, 2014. Herb enlisted in the Navy on January 13, 1942, just five weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor and was overseas until his discharge on October 5, 1945. Herb worked for Investors Diversified Services, as a meat cutter for Frank Pettibone, City Delivery and then as a salesman for Highland Potato Chips. In 1961, Herb and Evelyn purchased the Pla-Mor-Bowl bowling alley in Iowa Falls, which Herb ran until it was sold in 1967. Ellsworth Community College utilized the bowling alley for physical education classes and for intramural recreational bowling. It was this most positive relationship with the students that served as the impetus for both Herb and Evelyn to provide this assistance for future generations through their very generous scholarships. Following the sale of the bowling alley, Herb went to work at Iowa Veterinary Supply in Iowa Falls and was in charge of inventory control. The company had a practice of hiring college students as temporary help, which again reinforced Herb’s interest in helping young people in their pursuit of higher education. After his retirement from IVS in 1983, Herb pursued his lifelong hobbies of fishing and golf. College officials appreciate so much the thoughtfulness of Herb and Evelyn Lynk in providing this scholarship assistance to Ellsworth Community College students.
