The Naval Academy has named one of its main classroom buildings after my grandfather Jimmy Carter. Every Midshipman at the Naval Academy will now learn humanities, engineering, and language arts in Carter Hall. I was grateful to accept this honor on behalf of my grandfather last Friday.
I was in Annapolis when my grandfather released the news that he is accepting hospice care, and will be spending his final days at home around friends and family. I am incredibly fortunate that I was able to accept this honor and then travel to Plains to tell him about my trip.
I released this episode to tell you about this story and my grandfather’s overwhelming gratitude.
Thank you all for reaching out to me with your support through this time.
