Recognizing that he has consistently had the support of strong family and male-role models throughout his life he sought to give back to the community displaying that same type of support. From his parents, A.J. Carter, Sr. and Hettie Lee Carter, to his seven sisters, and one brother, A.J. Carter, Jr., to a few significant educators, Coach Carter garnered the direction to become successful through their presence in his life.

In an effort to share the same support with other young men and girls that he has enjoyed throughout his life, Coach Carter has personally endowed “The Coach Ken Carter Foundation” with a yearly grant.
