Why Is Bonnie Ethel Cone Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Bonnie Ethel Cone was an American educator best known as the founder of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Charlotte College officially became part of the UNC system on July 1, 1965. Cone served as acting Chancellor of the newly minted university until 1966, when Dean Colvard arrived to take over as full-time chancellor. Even though she had led the college since 1946, university system officials wanted a leader with experience running a four-year, public university. Cone and the university were profiled in the July 16, 1965 issue of Time magazine. In the article, she stated, "we are not here to elevate ourselves but the institution," when asked about the chancellor position. She served in various official positions until her retirement in 1973, at which time the main campus's student union was renamed the Cone University Center. Post retirement, Cone served as Vice-Chancellor Emeritus & Dean of Religious Studies.
