Leo Lambert – The “Head Phoenix” is Elon’s eighth president and has been serving the school since 1999. He is responsible for establishing many of the buildings and programs that are now Elon staples. His initiatives include changing Elon’s mascot from the Fightin’ Christians to the Phoenix and the construction of more than 100 buildings around campus.
