About Lane Evans: Lane was an outstanding supporter of Black Hawk College, education and the people in our region. He served the 17th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives for 24 years. He attended Black Hawk College in 1971, 1972 and 1980. In May of 2006, he was awarded an honorary Associate of Arts degree from Black Hawk College and was inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame. Lane earned a bachelor’s degree from Augustana College and later a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. He then practiced law in the Quad-Cities area, serving children, the poor and veterans in our region.
Each year, we bring together the members of our Heritage Society who have made the wonderful decision to leave Black Hawk College in their will or estate planning. The generosity of these donors will live on in perpetuity and remain a lasting legacy for future students of Black Hawk College.
