Ms. Carnathan will always be remembered as a legendary educator. Since I've known her, she has been a strong advocate for teachers, students, and policies affecting education. Her name preceded her, when I was a student at Lawhon. Everybody knew Ms. Carnathan, regardless of grade level. Blessings to your family. She will be greatly missed.
