Debby Harnishfeger Carter (born 27 August 1986) is an Alumni Member of Beta Zeta Chapter (ΒΖ 381) at University of Georgia. Debby exercises her Alumni awesomeness as a member of the National Alumni Association and the Atlanta Area Alumni Association. She has absolutely loved her experiences at the 2010 Alternative Break Project, 2011 Alternative Break Project, and the 2012 Alternative Break Project. Debby has served on the National Development Committee, Constitution and Chapter Standards Committee, and the Sanctions Appeal Board. Debby has achieved Leadership in Action certification, is a trained Local Facilitator, and is more than happy to travel and bring LIA to interested Chapters.
Early Fraternity Life and Career
Debby decided to attend the University of Georgia and began her college career in Fall of 2004. She was a member of the nationally acclaimed Redcoat Marching Band that football season. One night in Spring 2005, after finishing a women's self-defense class, she was wandering around the Tate Student Center looking for someone she knew who could loan her enough money to pay the fee to get out of the parking deck. Little did she know she was about to find something much more valuable than money. To be continued... (with equally corny cliff-hangers)

Other Interesting Facts
- I spent 6 wonderful years in Beta Zeta, and have happily transitioned into life as an Alumni Brother.
- I welcomed 12 initiate classes into Beta Zeta and watched equally as many Brothers transition into Alumni.
- I still have my Initiate Folder from when I rushed in 2005. I still have all the notes I have ever taken at Grand Chapters and National Conventions.
- The stars must have aligned when I rushed because VP of Chapter Development Kyle Williams and International Super Star/ Director of Expansion Ryan DeGuzman rushed in Spring 2005 as well.
