Marcella Elliott has been named Executive Administrative Assistant to the President and CEO of the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County and liaison to The Arts Council Board. Elliott is a graduate of North Carolina A&T University, where she earned a BS Degree in Journalism and Mass Communication (Public Relations).

”We have a small staff, so it is especially important that each person brings to their position a strong, diverse skill set, and a collegial attitude,” “said Randy Eaddy, President and CEO of The Arts Council. “We are fortunate and delighted to find Marcella, who knows our community, has a lifelong interest in the arts, and fits in so well with the rest of the staff.”

Elliott was reared in Winston-Salem and attended West Forsyth High School, where she was a Drama Club board member and was twice selected Student of the Year. Elliott attended North Carolina A&T from 2013-2017 and worked for three years with the director of marketing and publicity in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.

Elliott is the daughter of Evelyn Elliott, a teacher assistant at Konnoak Elementary School in Winston-Salem. Her father, Phillip Elliott, is assistant principal at Phoenix Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Winston-Salem, known as a City of Arts and Innovation, and Forsyth County have a robust arts community that enriches the lives of area residents every day and accounts in large part for the recognition they continue to receive as a great place to live, learn, work and play.  The most recent studies available showed that Forsyth County’s nonprofit arts industry supports 5,559 full time equivalent jobs; accounts for more than $129 million in resident household income, and generates more than $14.8 million in local and state tax revenues.
