Elton Brown is veteran of the United States Navy where he proudly served for 20 years. During his time in the military, Elton served aboard two aircraft carriers, one destroyer and a submarine tender, retiring in 2000 at the rank of Chief Petty Officer. Elton began his career with UNF in 2003 and has worked in various positions over the past 18 years. He is currently a Construction Project Manager in the Engineering department of Physical Facilities and believes in putting his all into every project assigned to him. He attributes his work ethic to growing up in a large family where everyone had a job to do and to the military for teaching him to be a team player. Elton’s can-do attitude, hard work and caring spirit are just a few of the reasons why he is the 2021 Staff Veteran of the Year.
