Wil Hampton has been elected president of the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports Noblesville’s public schools through its grant and scholarship programs. Hampton has served on the board since 2007.
“It’s an honor to be selected to lead an organization that works tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of Noblesville’s young people,” stated Hampton, who succeeds Nick Boland as president.
The board reviews grant requests from teachers twice a year grants that bring enriching lessons and projects to the schools.
“We closely examine each request and work together with teachers to ensure that we are providing funding that will be of the greatest benefit to our students. Each year we support a variety of projects that span the curriculum in all grades and all schools,” Hampton stated.
A native of Muncie, Hampton earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Mississippi. He and his wife, Becky, have three children, a sophomore at Ball State University and two freshmen at Noblesville High School.
