Greg Smith, left, and Mark Elhilow of Blue Ocean Capital pause after signing a finance and accounting scholarship endowment agreement with President William M. B. Fleming, Jr.
Greg Smith and Mark Elhilow, managing partners of Blue Ocean Capital, have established a new endowed scholarship for the Rinker School of Business at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
The scholarship, to be available in the fall of 2015, will benefit PBA students majoring in finance or accounting.
Smith and Elhilow have a long-standing relationship with Palm Beach Atlantic. In addition to having children attending the University and participating in its programs, the two have served a number of clients who have been an integral part of the University’s rich history and its leadership for many years.
Blue Ocean Capital has also had a number of PBA alumni on its professional team. Elhilow and Smith are both active supporters in PBA’s Annual Free Enterprise Day celebrations, and Elhilow received the American Free Enterprise Companion Medal in 2007.
