Article excerpt

Know Your VP

Dianna Carpenter has been a member of ACTS for a number of years and was elected to a three-year term as vice president of the Business Education Division in 2000. Teaching was her goal from very early in her life-though the choice of teaching assignments changed quite frequently. Early in her college career, Carpenter realized that business education was her destiny. She has taught in Roane County, W.V., for her entire career.

Becoming involved in professional associations was a natural progression for Carpenter; she is also a member of the National Business Education Association and participates in many other events in her community. Being the head junior sponsor in charge of the prom, yearbook advisor and Future Business Leaders of America advisor are activities that also keep her very busy.

Carpenter has been married for 26 years to Dennis. They have two sons, Miki and Brady-both students at West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.V.

The issue in education that concerns Carpenter the most is the looming teacher shortage that will impact business education in the near future.
