Marjorie Carter, a longtime Syracuse City School District employee and the first African American teacher in the SCSD, gave more than 60 years of service to our students. Earlier this year, she received a Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation Recognition Award for her many years of service. 

Ms. Carter was born and raised in Syracuse and attended city schools. She began her teaching career with the Syracuse City School District in 1950. After teaching first and second grades, Marjorie became an instructional specialist through federal government funding targeted to help inner city children. She served as the first president of the Syracuse Teachers Association and also holds the distinction of being the Syracuse City School District’s first African American teacher. In 1990, Marjorie retired from the city schools as an instructional specialist, but continues to volunteer her time throughout the community.

Ms. Carter was recently recognized in local media for her service. To view her CNY Central interview, please click here
