    Dear Parents and Students,
    Welcome to Carter High School's 100th year!  What an exciting time to be a part of the Carter High Community. Carter High School is a Tennessee Reward School, a Knox County APEX Award School, and a TAP Founder's Award Winner.  But our excellence is not confined just to Academics.  Our Marching Band is in the top ten in the state.  Our arts and drama departments continue to improve and produce top-notch work and productions.
    Our athletic programs remain as some of the best in the area.  We continued to excel in '13-'14 as we went to state in men's basketball, went 9-2 in football, and won district in both baseball and softball.
    Carter's commitment to hard work and excellence is clear in all of these accomplishments.  As students, you are coming to a special place that will push you to excellence. We are excited to have you as a part of the family.  Now comes the work.
    Have a great year!
    Go Hornets!
    Angie Messer
