FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 29, 2017) – The Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame (KVHOF) Board of Directors recently voted to add Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton to their governing body.
“I’m humbled and excited to accept the invitation to join the KVHOF Board of Directors,” said Lt. Gov. Hampton. “This opportunity allows me to continue supporting and advocating for Kentucky veterans, especially those who deserve recognition and celebration for their service to our nation and to their communities.”
“It is an absolute honor to welcome Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton to our Board,” said H.B. Deatherage, executive director of KVHOF. “As a veteran of the United States Air Force and KVHOF inductee in the class of 2015, Lt. Gov. Hampton shares a special connection with Kentucky’s veterans and it’s obvious in her work around the state that she is a champion for the veteran community. I look forward to working with the Lt. Governor as a director with KVHOF to solidify the organization as an ongoing means to honor the Kentucky’s veterans."
Lt. Gov. Hampton will be involved in encouraging citizens to submit inductee nominations, reviewing KVHOF nominations for the annual class of inductees, and helping to plan the annual induction ceremony.
“Jenean is a dedicated servant leader,” said Gov. Bevin. “I’m so thankful for her commitment to the Commonwealth, and know the veterans of Kentucky will be in good hands as she serves them in this role.”
