Keynote Speaker: Butch Carter

This year's Keynote Speaker is Middletown High School's own Butch Carter.

The former high school, Ohio Player of the Year, was highly recruited and experienced a stellar career at Indiana University before being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers. He continued to play for six years in the NBA; his illustrious career includes playing with the Lakers, Indiana Pacers, New York Knicks, and Philadelphia 76ers.

After leaving the NBA, Carter returned to Middletown High School as the Varsity Head Coach. He saw a need to pour back into his hometown community; he became not only a coach but a mentor and a role model to his players. He demanded that education comes first and instilled a strong work ethic and discipline, all through the game of basketball. Within two seasons, he turned Middletown High School's losing record into an 18-3 record and was acknowledged for this two-year turnaround by being named Ohio High School Coach of the Year. Carter is the only person named both Player and Coach of the Year in the state of Ohio.
