Dr. Claudia H. Hampton was the first African-American trustee of the California State University. She served on the board for 20 years (1974 to 1994); three of those years as chair from 1979 to 1981. She was a teacher and administrator in the Los Angeles Unified School District for 25 years, retiring in 1981 as director of the district's Human and School-Community Relations Resource Office.
Her friend, colleague, and fellow trustee Dr. Herbert Carter funded the Hampton Scholars Scholarship in her honor to recognize students who excel academically and exemplify Dr. Hampton's dedication.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
