Colonel Mark Tillman
Chosen as the nation’s 12th Presidential pilot, Colonel (ret) Mark W. Tillman served as pilot and commander of Air Force One from 2001-2009. Col. Tillman was at the controls of Air Force One through numerous national events. Most notably, he protected the President on September 11, 2001 by keeping him out of harms way and connecting the flying oval office to the nation’s first responders.
Another historic event was being the first pilot to fly the Commander-in-Chief into a war zone. The challenge was unprecedented–transport the most targeted man in the world into the heart of terrorism. One mistake would have left the President open to attack and cost the lives of US service members. Col. Tillman personally orchestrated and executed the covert operation with flawless success. His planning, done in complete secrecy, allowed for a complete surprise to the entire world.
Col. Tillman’s distinguished career spans 30 years in the United States Air Force. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross in 2004 and promoted to Brigadier General by the President of the United States–the first military line officer to receive this honor. For political reasons this was not confirmed by the Senate, hence Tillman retired as a Colonel.
A man devoted to serving his country, this captivating storyteller will give you a first-hand account of remarkable moments in history.
Chief Jeffrey A. Baker, Chief of Police UNCC
Chief Baker will share his experiences as the Chief of Police at UNC Charlotte during the mass shooting that occurred on April 30, 2019. The event, which occurred on the last day of classes for the spring semester, sent six people to the hospital, two of whom were dead upon arrival, and left three others in critical condition. The shooting occurred inside a classroom in the Woodford A. Kennedy Building while students were giving a final presentation. The perpetrator, a former UNCC student named Trystan Andrew Terrell, was arrested shortly afterwards. In September 2019, he pleaded guilty to the murders and was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
Chief Baker’s career of thirty-eight years has been blessed with a host of diverse experiences that span throughout the safety, security, and business realm. He has had close interactions, assignments, and opportunities with noted leaders of both public and private entities. As a determined and dogged problem solver, he is tireless in the pursuit of positive outcomes.
Chief Baker retired as a Captain from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police following a diverse career with many assignments throughout our community. I then joined the UNC Charlotte Police Department and competed in a nationwide search for Chief of Police. The UNC Charlotte Police Department is dedicated, CALEA Accredited, and our Officers are certified by the NC LE Training & Standards Div. of the DOJ. They have managed emergencies and situations that were profound in nature.

UNCC was awarded International Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) in December 2016.
