Today – September 16th, 2021 – marks the 12th anniversary of the death of W. Horace Carter and the year he would have turned 100.
We honor WHC each year on Founder’s Day and want to take time today to remember our him not only as our founder, but as the visionary who has gifted us with a culture of courage, justice, determination, and compassion.
As we reflect on his legacy today, we can also look at the indelible mark he left on the history of this country in fighting for what’s right. Here is a short video encapsulating his actions leading to the Pulitzer Prize in 1953.

Thank you to Horace for leading with honor and integrity and for starting us on a path that we may build upon year after year. We are truly grateful.
