Winslow Carter was born on October 21, 1950. His parents were Walter Carter and Betty Griffin Carter. He was born in Jacksonville, NC and raised on a tobacco farm in a community called Hubert. It is close to Swansboro and about 12 miles from Emerald Isle.
Winslow is the oldest of four children. He has a brother, James Carter, another brother, Donald Carter, and a sister Addie Carter Davenport.
Winslow says that in 1972, “I made the most important decision of my life. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. It has been the anchor that has guided my life through difficult and good times.”
Winslow attended Swansboro Elementary, Middle and High
Schools. He graduated in June 1969 from high school and entered
Chowan College in the fall of 1969 to begin his post high school
career. Winslow added, “It was the best choice I could have made.”
Winslow is first generation college student, as his parents only had a 5th and 6th grade education. At Chowan, Winslow added, “I was given the care, attention and personal attention I needed to succeed. I owe Chowan more than I can ever pay back.”
In 1971, Winslow received his Associate of Arts from Chowan and in the fall of 1971, he entered Campbell College (now Campbell University). “Chowan had prepared me well. I did very well at Campbell and majored in History Education and graduated in 1973. I was the Baptist Student Union President at both Chowan and Campbell Colleges,” stated Winslow.
In the summer of 1973, Winslow attended Meredith College Journeyman training for seven weeks preparing to go to Kenya Africa for a two-year stint as a teacher at Mombasa Baptist High School where he taught African History, English and geography. He also did student work with the high school students as a Sunday School teacher and assisted the career Missionaries in whatever way needed. While there, Winslow climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in December of 1975.
He returned from Kenya in 1975 and took a job in Gates County, NC as a teacher in a Wilderness Camp for boys with emotional problems. It was a difficult but rewarding job. He left the camp after a year to marry Harriet Rosser of Sanford, NC. They met while at Campbell and have had an exciting life together. In 1980, their first child, Emily Eileen was born and in 1984 they welcomed a son, Andrew Eugene. Emily has given them two wonderful grandsons Lucas (5) and Max Dodson (7). In addition to their children, they have had nine foster children and hosted six international high school students. The Carters also had two Liberians live with them for a year, a Chinese student for a summer and two Rotary Scholars for several months, San Hee from Korea, and a student, Muyatwa, from Zambia.
Winslow worked at Chowan College as Admissions Director for eight years. He then moved to Chapel Hill, NC where he worked for 22 years as a high school Career Counselor at Chapel Hill and East Chapel Hill High Schools.
He retired in 2014 with a total of 42 years in education with the different areas of education in which he worked. Since retirement, he has been extremely busy with Yates Baptist Church in Durham, NC. Winslow has also been a Rotarian in the Chapel Hill Sunrise Rotary Club for 18 years. Since 2015, he has been a tour guide at Duke Homestead the state historic site in Durham where Washington Duke’s family began in the tobacco manufacturing business and funded Duke University and many other important causes. This has been a very gratifying experience for Winslow.
Winslow summarized, “My wife, two children and two grandsons have made my life full and each day something to look forward to in the years ahead. I have been extremely blessed in my life. Chowan was the beginning of the exciting life I never dreamed could happen to me. I know that without going to Chowan, I may never have achieved the goals I have and met the people who have so enriched my life. Thank you, Chowan, for opening doors that have given me a great life.”

She encouraged her to compete for the position. Ann took her advice and out of 600 applicants from three other colleges, Ann was selected for the position and started her career with the government in June 1994. Ann said, “I will be forever grateful to Chowan University, Mrs. Dorothy Wallace and others at Chowan who played a vital part in my education.” Ann graduated with my 4-year degree in Business Administration May 1995.
Here are Ann’s words, “Since my graduation from Chowan, I have worked in my community as a foster parent of eight children and adopted two. I have served on the Chowan Alumni Council for years and enjoy it tremendously. I am an Evangelist at the Temple of Jesus Christ United Fellowship, Washington, NC with Bishop James Woolard, Pastor. I have also served as a Co-Pastor under the Leadership of Apostle Joyce Cherry of Beulah Land International Ministry, Conway. NC.”
On May, 31, 2021 Ann retired from the Social Security Administration after 27 years and recently acquired her State License to sell Life Insurance Policies and will go on to study and take the State Exams to work with investments with Primerica.
