Congratulations to Ridgely Carter-Minter and Gilbert Carter Jr.

The Richmond Free Press has a profile of siblings Ridgely Carter-Minter and Gilbert Carter Jr., who were named Teacher of the Year at Woodville ES and Boushall MS respectively.

Shortly after learning about her brother’s honor in May, Mrs. Carter-Minter, 31, also was named Teacher of the Year — at Woodville Elementary School in the East End, where she teaches fifth grade.


Mr. Carter and Mrs. Carter-Minter are products not only of Richmond Public Schools, they come from a large, extended family whose members are replete with their own recognition as classroom teachers and school administrators.

The Carter siblings’ father, the late Gilbert L. Carter Sr., taught law at Virginia State College (now University) and was assistant dean of student life at Virginia Commonwealth University. He later worked for the City of Richmond and Virginia Union University.

Herman L. Carter, Mr. Carter Sr.’s brother and the Carter siblings’ uncle, taught chemistry at Armstrong High School before becoming a principal at Kennedy and John Marshall high schools.

The family ties to education don’t stop there. Sheron Carter-Gunter, the Carter siblings’ first cousin and Herman Carter’s daughter, currently is principal at Franklin Military Academy in Richmond.

Other family members serve as an English specialist and in the performing arts for Richmond Public Schools.
