Off the Quad, Carter is the president of the Physical Therapy Society on campus. In this role, Carter leads weekly meetings for 100 undergraduate Pre-Physical Training students.

“I believe that to change the world you must first start with making the individual competent. You must first do the ‘small’ things correctly; making a proper rack, shining your brass, and having a fresh shave. These things quickly evolve into efficiently running organizations and leading communities. The Corps of Cadets is one of the most powerful tools to improve society that I have encountered, and I am thankful that I was able to spend my time at Texas A&M University on the Quad,” Carter said of his time in the Corps of Cadets.
Upon graduating from Texas A&M in the spring of 2022, Carter plans to enter a three-year Doctorate of Physical Therapy program in Texas. Following his completion of the program, Carter plans to open his own private orthopedic sports medicine clinic. Carter hopes that he will be able to assist individuals in overcoming their orthopedic injuries so they can regain the freedom to pursue their fitness and life goals.
