In memoriam: Betty Carter, retired commencement coordinator

Betty Jean Melton Carter died Thursday, Jan. 25.

She retired from the Registrar’s Office as the commencement coordinator, gathering scores of volunteers and planning and staging the university’s most public annual event, former Assistant Vice Chancellor David Vaughan explains. “We called her out of retirement to help us organize the zillions of details associated with the inauguration of Erskine Bowles as the university president.”

He also notes that there were two prominent staff members named Betty Carter in that era. The recently deceased Betty Carter was in the Registrar’s Office, not University Libraries.
