James (Jim) Hamblin and his wife, Nancy, have been avid supporters of IU since they both attended the Bloomington campus in the 1970s. Both Jim and Nancy served as student leaders on the IU Alumni Association.
Jim continued his education with IU and opened a dental practice in Highland, Ind. Since the Hamblin's reside in Munster, Indiana, they elected to give back to IU locally by serving the Northwest campus and its community. The Hamblin's contribute regularly to several scholarship funds for IU Northwest students.
