June 10 – Living the Sixth Principal with Pride

Speaker Carter Smith of Sioux City will speak on “Living the Sixth Principal with Pride.”

Bio: Carter Smith was born and raised on a farm in rural Minnesota, where he participated in the day to day operations of the farm, while attending public school as a closeted individual.  The local climate caused Carter to decide to remain in the closet, and he moved south after graduating High School, to attend the University of South Dakota (USD).  ​Carter has since remained in the Siouxland area, and worked in Data Quality Analytics in the tech and finance fields before switching over to nonprofit work in 2014, he has spent the last four years working with the Siouxland Community Health Center in their HIV program as an HIV Caseworker. Carter has been active with the Siouxland Pride Alliance, the Sierra Club, and is currently the President of the Board of Trustees for the First Unitarian Church of Sioux City where he keeps a small cottage, with his two cats (Mars & Reba Porkchop) and one dog (Seth). In his spare time he gardens and is active in local politics,  visiting his childhood home in Minnesota to help with farm work.
