Dr. George Hampton was a “a living legend” and a community role model. He was a towering figure in Prince William County who has had a profound impact on those of us who knew and admired him. But his impact and legacy of commitment, honor, and excellence will resound across generations. His memory is one that I will cherish and honor as I continue to serve the residents of Woodbridge.
Following a successful 20-year career as an officer in the United States Army, Dr. Hampton served Prince William County for over 50 years, as an educator, government official, and philanthropist.
I vividly recall the sense of community pride when Prince William County Schools named a middle school in in his honor, to recognize his service and commitment. We must now cement Dr. Hampton’s legacy through the work we do all across Prince William County.
