While she is a Macon native, Katy has only just recently returned to her hometown in 2022 after over a decade away in New York, Baltimore, and Houston. With a background in training, operational management, and communications, Katy’s experience ranges from global companies such as Disney and Landry’s, Inc. to nonprofits and small businesses. When she and her husband (Stratford Theatre Director Adam Carr) moved back to Macon, she found reasons to be on the Stratford campus as a volunteer- either for performing arts events or for her daughter’s preschool classes so often at one point Dr. Adams joked that she was practically an employee. Katy officially joined the Stratford family as Director of Annual Giving in 2023 and is happy to say she’s embraced the Eagle Spirit with enthusiasm! She’s thrilled to be part of the staff at Stratford, who have already invested so much into her own family. With daughter Caroline (future 2036 grad) just beginning her Stratford tenure, Katy can’t think of a better place for her entire family to be plugged in.
Katy Thompson Carr is a graduate of West Texas A&M University, a Macon Rotarian, on the Board of Directors for Theatre Macon, and serves as choreographer of the Macon Civic Club show.
