Dr. Michael Elliott – HumanKind Board Chairman, 2015-2018
Centra, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
In 2013, Michael’s family moved to the Lynchburg area from Chesapeake to work with Centra. With a lot of opportunities to get involved within the community, he took the first year to look around and figure out what matched up with his passions in life around Human Services. After learning about Lynchburg and having a better understanding of the needs of the community, it was obvious to Michael that he wanted to serve with Humankind. Coming from a home with a single mother, he did not have the transportation or opportunity to be involved with outside activities. The community made sure that Michael was able to attend sports practices and events. The community made sure that he was able to reach his full potential and instilled self-confidence.
“Humankind’s mission speaks to me and it speaks to everything that I have tried to accomplish in life, as well,” said Michael Elliott. Humankind’s mission is to strengthen individuals and families through care, counseling and education. For Michael, it is a perfect fit.
