Gzeonie Hampton felt like she was coming home when she enrolled at UofL as a McConnell Scholar and a Porter Scholar. Now Hampton’s aunt and the rest of her extended family will be celebrating with her May 7, when she graduates with an undergraduate degree in political science and English and with a long-term dream of working in Middle Eastern foreign relations for the U.S. State Department.
