UNCP Trustee Mary Ann Elliott is an internationally renowned satellite communications entrepreneur.
As one of the nation’s top female satellite communications executives, Elliott understands that a qualified workforce is needed to grow the economy of southeastern North Carolina. That was among the factors motivating the donation of $500,000 toward the new multi-million-dollar facility to house the School of Business at UNCP. A career center in the new facility will be named The Mary Ann Elliott Business Career Center in her honor.
Chancellor Robin Gary Cummings commended Elliott for her generosity and firm belief in the mission of the university.
