State Rep. Doreen Carter honored by the Georgia Association of Educators

Rep. Carter GAE Award


ATLANTAState Rep. Doreen Carter has been named Legislator of the Year by the Georgia Association of Educators (GAE). The association presented the award on May 1 during its annual gala.

 Carter said she was surprised and honored to receive the award.  

“Being the daughter of a teacher’s aide, this award means more to me than you would ever know. I watched my mother work tirelessly in the classroom for children and families, and with that same determination, I wanted to work on behalf of children, teachers, families, and all the great people in my district and this great state,” Carter said. “ I was thoroughly surprised to receive the honor. I do not do this work for recognition. I do it because my priority is to always do what is right—a message that was instilled in me from a young child watching my mother in the classroom.”

Carter has served as a state representative since 2015 and is a member of the following standing committees: Education, Code Revision, Small Business Development, Labor and Industry, and Special Rules. Carter is currently running in her district’s primary for re-election.
