Campus Champion

Darcel Faulkner Carver came to SUNY Cortland as a freshman in the fall of 2001 with dreams of being a high school science teacher or principal. A sense of duty, however, drew her to the Marine Corps before she could graduate. Staff Sergeant Carver served active duty in Iraq and most recently with the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Darcel, a mother of four, including triplets, returned to campus this fall to complete her degree in adolescence education: biology. She continues her commitment to helping Marines as the Upstate New York representative for the Marine For Life Network, assisting others in their transition to civilian life.
