FARGO – A prominent attorney who grew up in Fargo will be nominated by President Barack Obama to represent the U.S. at the United Nations, a White House news release stated.

Carol Leslie Hamilton, who graduated from Fargo Central High School in 1965, will be the president’s nominee for alternate representative for the U.S. at the 69th session of the U.N. General Assembly.

Hamilton was previously a deputy city attorney in Los Angeles before helping start a legal clinic for domestic abuse victims and later founding the Tibet Justice Center. She has a private practice in Beverly Hills and serves on the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO.

She has been politically active since working on the campaign of North Dakota Sen. Quentin N. Burdick while in elementary school. In 2012, she campaigned for Obama’s re-election.

Speaking of Hamilton and six other nominees for U.N.-related positions, Obama stated he was “proud to nominate such impressive men and women to these important roles, and I am grateful they have agreed to lend their considerable talents to this Administration.”
