Sarah Carter , Activities and Communications Coordinator
Sarah is a recent graduate of Clemson University, earning her MA in Professional Communication in 2018 and her BA in English from Augusta University in 2016. While at Clemson she taught first-year composition as a Graduate Teacher of Record during her final year of study and was heavily involved in Graduate Student Government and Clemson’s chapter of the Society for Technical Communication.
For her master’s level client project, Sarah worked with current Board President Katie Callahan and Clemson’s Center for Watershed Excellence on a three-part ecotourism package. Through on-site fieldwork, interviews with locals and intensive theory application, this collaboration championed a personal responsibility to preserve and protect the Cane/Little Cane Creek watershed systems in Oconee County, SC, and explored how the health and longevity of this treasure affects residents’ lives both personally and professionally.
After going on a humanitarian trip to Swaziland (eSwatini) in summer 2016, Sarah has felt compelled to involve herself in local water quality initiatives through the application of her communications and writing skills. In her spare time she thoroughly enjoys hiking, painting, pro bono volunteering, attending Clemson football games, and strolling around downtown Greenville with her fiancé.
