Diane Carr founded the Southern School of Etiquette after receiving her certification from the prestigious American School of Protocol. The goal of the Southern School of Etiquette is to empower individuals with the social graces and self-confidence to achieve a successful life.
Diane received her Bachelor’s degree from James Madison University and her Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Virginia.
Diane’s career began as a business high school teacher. After fifteen years in secondary education, she developed programs for Workforce Training and Development for the local community college. Many of these sessions focused on preparation for career enhancement and growth. This opportunity opened additional training opportunities in professional and personal development for local businesses, organizations and institutions as well as area youth.
Diane routinely observed in her career that there is an unmet need for improvement in etiquette among our youth as well as adults today. Founding the Southern School of Etiquette was the obvious next step to provide education to individuals in addressing school, social, and professional situations with civility.
