Phail Wynn, Jr. passed away on July 24, 2018. Phail was a friend and mentor to our staff, board, and leadership council. We are heartbroken at the Foundation, and we know that feeling is shared throughout the entire region. Phail left a huge mark on our culture and our hearts. To say he will be missed is an understatement. One of his favorite quotes was, “The road to knowledge has no end.” We’ll take the baton for you now, dear friend. We will always love you madly.
