NEWS RELEASE

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced today that he has appointed Dr. Sybil Jordan Hampton of Little Rock to the Arkansas Ethics Commission.

Hampton, 69, is a long-time educator, and she most recently served as president of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. She retired from the Little Rock-based foundation in 2006 as president emeritus.

“Dr. Hampton has spent her lifetime serving the public in the fields of education and philanthropy, and I am grateful for her willingness to continue to serve the people of Arkansas on the Ethics Commission,” McDaniel said.

A 1962 Little Rock Central High School graduate, Hampton was a member of the second class of black students to enroll in Central and was the first black student to attend 10th, 11th and 12th grades at the school.

She has a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Earlham College in Richmond, Ind., a master’s degree in education from the University of Chicago and a master's and doctorate in higher education from Columbia University.

She started her career as an elementary school teacher.

Hampton currently serves on the boards of the Mount Holly Cemetery Association, the Little Rock Club and the Blue and You Foundation of Arkansas Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She also serves on the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging Community Advisory Board and the Pepper Center Community Advisory Board.

Hampton replaces Rev. J. Barrington Minix Sr. Her term expires in 2019.
