At the ceremony, Hampton University President William R. Harvey thanked the Hrabowskis for their generous donations. The couple had donated over $500,000 to the historically Black college and university (HBCU).

“They truly believe in giving back,” said President Harvey at the unveiling of the sign on the facing of the Freeman and Jacqueline Hrabowski Student Success Center building.

The center houses support services for new students at Hampton and provide tools to enhance academic performance, remove barriers, and foster improvement within the university.

“The Hampton experience made us feel special. It prepared us to work hard, give back and let our lives do the singing. For that, we are eternally grateful. I want to thank you for this fantastic honor,” said Mrs. Hrabowski.

Mrs. Hrabowski is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and The Links. She retired as vice president of corporate community involvement at T. Rowe Price in 2009.
