ISU arena to be named after a West Des Moines couple

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa State University will name a proposed agriculture building after a West Des Moines couple.

Wednesday the Iowa Board of Regents voted to name the center after the founders of Iowa Select Farms, Jeff and Deb Hansen. The company is the largest Iowa-based pork producer.

The Hansens pledged $2 million for construction of the Agriculture Student Learning Center. The center will include an arena with seating for 1,000 and four classrooms. The plan still needs regents' approval.

The ISU Foundation says it has completed fundraising for the project.
