Shaw's Alfonza Carter named to CIAA Hall of Fame

Posted January 24, 2013

— Shaw University Dean of Students and former Athletic Director Alfonza Carter was named to the 2013 Class of the John B. McLendon, Jr. CIAA Hall of Fame Thursday. The announcement was made by the CIAA in conjunction with the CIAA Executive Committee.

"I am deeply honored to have been selected as one of the CIAA's 2013 Hall of Fame inductees," said Carter. "Many others have worked and played tirelessly in this great association, so to be officially acknowledged and listed among men and women who excelled and brought victory, pride and respect to the CIAA is personally quite humbling."

Alfonza “Al” Carter, who earned his bachelor's degree in 1973 from North Carolina A&T State University, has served at Shaw University in a variety of roles including Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, Director of Admissions and Recruitment, Athletic Director, Head Men's Basketball Coach, Head Women's Basketball Coach and Interim Dean of Enrollment Management.

During his tenure as Athletic Director, the men's basketball program advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight, the women's basketball program reached the Final Four, the men's tennis team won seven straight CIAA tennis championships, and countless student-athletes matriculated and received their degrees.

A total of six individuals and one team comprise the 2013 induction class. They will be enshrined on Friday, March 2, 2013 at the Charlotte Convention Center at 11:00 a.m.
