- KC's View:
I admired Phil enormously, and very much enjoyed our interactions when I was out at WMU. He always struck me as a giver - he enjoyed being around young people, of helping to enable their careers, and serving as a magnet for industry professionals, bringing them to campus and creating connections. He was a good guy, and I know his family and friends - and all the students whose lives he helped change - are grieving today. I join them.
