Livingstone College official to serve as chef in 'Livingstone College Nite at Five Guys'

By Laurie D. Willis
Livingstone College
Dr. Stanley J. Elliott wears many hats at Livingstone College: vice president of student affairs, mentor and recruiter. Not one to just sit around, if something needs to be done, you can count on Elliott to do it. Including cooking.
Thursday night, Elliott will shed his official titles for one a little less sophisticated, though no less important: chef.
It’s all part of a fundraising effort between Livingstone College and Five Guys that will take place at the restaurant, 475 Jake Alexander Blvd., from 5 to 8 p.m.
During that time, Five Guys will donate $1 from the sale of every burger, hot dog or order of fries to Livingstone College, said Assistant General Manager Josh Guyle.
The restaurant, famous for its juicy, greasy burgers, has participated in similar fundraising efforts before with Salisbury High School and Rolling Thunder, a veterans group, Guyle said.
Now it’s Livingstone’s turn. “It gives us pretty good publicity and we like reaching out to the community and being a part of it,” Guyle said. “It’s usually a fun event, and it doesn’t matter whether you eat in or get take out. Livingstone will benefit.”
Five Guys, a Lorton, Va.-based company, has been in Salisbury since the summer of 2007. Livingstone, on the other hand, has been around since 1879. But on Thursday night, Elliott and other Livingstone officials hope mixing the old with the new will produce a winning recipe.
“Most people, unless they’re vegetarians, eat hamburgers and hot dogs,” Elliott said. “And who doesn’t like french fries? We just hope that on Thursday night, anyone who gets a hankering for such cuisine will stop by Five Guys to satisfy their taste buds. Not only will they get some really good food, among Salisbury’s best, but they’ll be helping Livingstone College in the process.
We appreciate Five Guys’ management for setting up “Livingstone College Nite at Five Guys,” Elliott said. “And we hope the public will be very supportive of our efforts.”
