Tina Banks-Gray

School Board Member with the City of Hampton

Pet: Tigger, 17, Bichon Frise

Since leaving a breeder in Missouri to “live his best life” in Hampton 17 long years ago, Tigger just may love the city as much as his owner, Tina Banks-Gray, who serves as the Neighborhood Centers manager and as a member of the school board. Tigger certainly has it made in his adopted hometown, where he enjoys “long naps, blankets and his backyard” while mom is busy doing her best to enhance the quality of life and educational opportunities for the citizens and students of Hampton. “I believe that many pet owners can attest to the many benefits pets add to our lives,” Tina says, “such as joy, laughter, companionship and healing to name a few.”
