Wilma Damhof Hoekstra ’45 and ’69 and her late husband Tony Hoekstra ’61 established a legacy of love for Central College that has persisted for over 80 years and multiple generations. As a mother of six, grandmother of 17, great-grandmother of 42 and a teacher of hundreds, Wilma’s lifelong passion for learning was cultivated while attending Central. This ultimately led to a career as one of Pella’s most beloved first-grade teachers at old Lincoln Elementary School.
