Sonya Carson

Sonya Carson

Sonya Carson has been a huge inspiration to both Ben and me. She was one of twenty-four children, was married when she was only thirteen, and raised Ben and Curtis on her own. Despite her difficult circumstances, she received her GED in 1969, an honorary doctorate in 1986 (she is Dr. Carson, too!), and instilled her boys with a love for learning and a strong work ethic.
