Former Oklahoma safety Quinton Carter's foundation, S.O.U.L., Serving Others through Unity Leadership, partnered up with Pros for Vets in sponsoring an educational garden for the Norman's 12th Avenue KinderCare.

The garden dedication ceremony was Friday morning.

Among those attending was Sooner quarterback Landry Jones and defensive back Julian Wilson. Carter could not attend because he's in California preparing for the NFL Draft, but he has been working with the KinderCare kids since his sophomore year at OU when he founded S.O.U.L.

"Looking back, this used to be a regular playground” said Jones, who spoke during the ceremony. “Now it's filled with a place where learning is going on, people stepping up and changing lives of these kids around here.

"This place just makes me excited, this education garden is going to change our community."
