Hometown Hero: Antonio Elliott

Posted: Updated:

Antonio Elliott loves science, math and museums. When the Lancaster native was a little boy he loved going to museums, but he was a bit sad because he rarely saw African Americans working there.  He was fascinated by what he learned but he wanted more of a connection.

After graduating from Lancaster High School, Elliott had a career in the U.S. Marine Corps. After his service he decided to focus on getting a PhD in sociology... and he thought about museums.

Elliott is now one of the 1,000 volunteers at the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas and he loves being there. Two days a week he works in the "Being Human Hall" on Level 2.  That's where the human body and mind are revealed in fascinating and fun interactive exhibits. 

His personality is high voltage and he truly enjoys explaining the exhibits to museum goers. He is proud to be a volunteer at the Perot Museum, where he can represent to all visitors the African Americans who are engaged in the fields of math and science.
