Continuing the Legacy
Both Doug '86 and Wilma '85 Bing graduated from Union College. Although they didn't meet at Union, they did date and were married during their time there. After they were married, the Bings served as student missionaries to Indonesia.
Although there were many good memories at Union College, Doug says that one of his favorites was listening to Morris Venden who was the pastor at the time. "Listening to him was a pivotal point in my understanding of spirituality."
Doug also enjoyed being involved in student government and was ASB president for a year.
The Bings believe that higher education is one of the most important things you can provide for your children and have helped worthy students receive that education.
He hopes that his estate gift to Union College will leave a legacy in the lives that it touches. "I hope they will go on to do what God wants them to do and that they will continue the legacy. I hope that they will be impacted and then pay it forward so they can impact someone else's life."
Doug feels that it is important to remember that it was because of someone like himself that he and other students were able to attend Union. "We should step forward and help those following us. I believe in Union College. I believe in the good Midwestern values, the spiritual values, and the academic values there. It's a very positive place. I hope my kids will go there someday."
