Carolyn Sue Hinshaw Rogers, age 80, a dedicated educator who retired from teaching with Alexander County Schools and also owned and ran United Variety Store, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, June 1, 2024, in Alexander County.

Carolyn's passion for education led her to earn a master’s degree in education, shaping the minds of many students throughout her career.

Her fondness for animals was evident to all who knew her.
