In Memory of Danny Carter

Danny Carter was tragically killed by a drunk driver the summer between seventh and eighth grade in August of 1995. About a year after Danny died, his elementary school Eli Whitney Elementary in Stratford, placed a bench on the playground with a plaque in honor of Danny. It was brought to our attention about a year ago that the plaque had fallen in disrepair. We decided that we would replace the plaque, to make a more permanent memorial at the school for Danny. Last night, we had the honor of presenting the new plaque to Danny’s mom Alice Carter and his sister Kate Carter, as well as the Eli Whitney Elementary school. The plaque will be mounted in the school, where Danny’s memory will live on for many years to come.
