About Michelle:
Raised in a Christian home from age seven, Michelle’s parents stressed the importance of doing what God wanted and pleasing Him as opposed to living life her way. Her parents are retired and continue to serve in many ways. She is the only girl, smack in the middle of two boys. Her two brothers are both married and both are serving the Lord faithfully. She is blessed to have seven nieces and three nephews whom she loves dearly. She enjoys spending time with people, reading a good novel, going to the beach, painting, and scrapbooking. The Lord allowed her to serve overseas for two years in Durban, South Africa. As a result of living there, a few of her favorite vacation spots are the game park and mountain resorts in South Africa. She enjoys watching baseball, soccer, basketball, cricket, and rugby. She also enjoys being involved at Heritage Baptist Church, and is currently serving on the Missions Committee.

History of Carter
Dr. Rembrandt Carter joined the Baptist Bible Seminary faculty in 1961 to teach in the history department. Dr. Carter came to be known for the clarity of his defense for the pre-millennial dispensational position, his cogent explanation of the Baptist distinctives, and his expertise in Puritan theology. Dr. Carter introduced a Fine Arts course to the BBS curriculum, and further encouraged interaction with the arts through “culture days,” during which students visited various cities like Washington D.C., Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. The school acknowledged his tremendous contribution by naming Carter Hall in his honor.
