BELTON (May 9, 2013)--The City of Belton will recognize Wayne Carpenter Tuesday for his nine nonconsecutive terms of service on the council.
For more than 17 years, Carpenter, 64, served in three different capacities while on the city council.
Carpenter began his service to the city in 1984 while teaching government and driving a school bus.
Carpenter continued on the city council to include serving as mayor pro tem twice before retiring from his position as Deputy Superintendent for BISD.
“I have greatly enjoyed my time on the city council and feel I have learned far more than I have contributed. I am extremely proud of the progress the city has made and feel blessed to have contributed in some way to that progress,” Carpenter said.
Carpenter is a member of First United Methodist Church in Belton and was a former columnist for the Belton Journal.
He and his wife, Ann, hope to travel more and spend more time with family.
