President Ingram’s statement on the passing of Phail Wynn, Jr.

Durham Tech President Bill Ingram has released the following statement on the passing of former president Dr. Phail Wynn, Jr.:

“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the unexpected passing of my mentor, colleague, and friend, Dr. Phail Wynn, Jr.  Dr. Wynn’s contributions to this community and state are broad and deep. He touched the lives of countless thousands of residents of Durham and the Triangle region through his 27 years as Durham Tech’s third president and over ten years as Duke’s first Vice President for Durham and Regional Affairs.  My thoughts and prayers are with Peggy, Rahsaan, and the Wynn family at this heartbreaking time.”
