Mallory Carter '13
For Randolph-Macon College student Mallory Carter ’13, playing
volleyball for the
Yellow Jackets is a dream come true.
“One of my lifelong goals was to play college volleyball,” she says. “I was recruited
as an outside hitter for the Yellow Jackets, and after meeting the coaches and players,
I knew this was where I wanted to be.”
Carter, who was the 2012 ODAC Player of the Year, is the only two-time All-American
in the program’s history. The three-time All-ODAC selection has played for the Jackets
since her freshman year, and she has served as team captain for three years. The
Times-Dispatch recently featured a story about Carter’s prowess on
the volleyball court.
Carter, a psychology major, says that Randolph-Macon
offers students unlimited opportunities.
“I serve as an officer in my sorority,
Kappa Alpha Theta; I work part-time at a daycare center in the off-season; and I
have wonderful friends,” says the Moseley, Virginia native. “I have grown so much
since my freshman year and I have R-MC to thank for that. I am really thrilled that
I was recently accepted into Rho Lambda, the National Sorority Leadership Recognition
Society.” Rho Lambda honors those women within the sorority community who have exhibited
the highest qualities of
leadership and service to their Greek community and their sorority.
Carter looks forward to participating in a
January Term internship in 2013. She will be working in the Guidance Department
of Hanover County Public Schools. The internship was arranged through R-MC’s
Bassett Internship program.
“Psychology Professor Robert Resnick arranged the internship for me,” says Carter.
“This internship will help me gain insight into the world of helping other people,
which is my lifelong goal.”
As for future plans, Carter says her post-R-MC game plan is still in the works.
She plans to continue her education and is considering several options.
“I would like to stay in the area—either University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth
University, or William & Mary,” she says. “I enjoy working with young people
and I think I am well-suited for a service-related role. Ultimately I’d like to
have a career in teaching, nursing, or education psychology.”
