Richland two announces military community liaison


Richland Two recently announced that Kelsie Carter is the district’s first Military Community

“Military families have a different experience than our typical new families. We wanted to have someone in
place who really understood that and who could provide insight into how we could better serve our
families as well as strengthen our relationship with the greater military community,” said Superintendent
Dr. Baron R. Davis.

Carter’s experiences working on military bases around the world and as the spouse of a career US Air
Force service member have prepared her for this role. She joined the Richland Two family last year as an
assistant in the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Inclusion.

She has devoted the last 30 years of her life to community and advocacy work, with an emphasis on
mental health and community counseling, military family support and outreach, higher education and K-12
education and support. Her most recent work on installation was as a family care behavioral specialist for
three Marine base camps in Okinawa, Japan, with the Child, Youth and Family Services Offices. She spent
a number of years working with Military One Source as a consultant and first responder addressing
emergency and crisis calls received by service members and their families of all branches all over the
world. She and her husband, Ret. Lt. Col George Carter have two children enrolled in in Richland Two

“I know what it’s like to prepare for deployments, permanent change of station (PCS) moves and
extended temporary duty (TDY),” Carter said. “I understand first-hand many of the challenges military
families endure and how crucial and important this role is.”

Carter received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of South Carolina and her
master’s degree in education with an emphasis in counseling and development from George Mason
University in Fairfax, Virginia. She has completed coursework towards a Ph.D in counseling psychology
and plans to complete her doctorate in the near future. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority
Inc., NAACP, NCNW (National Council for Negro Women) and BPW USA Business and Professional Women


USA, National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP), South Carolina Association of
Educational Office Professionals (SCAEOP) and Richland County Association of Educational Office
Professionals (RAEOP).
