VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) _ Vincennes University says retired school president Phillip Summers has died at age 74.
Summers was the university's president for 21 years until he stepped down in 2001 as leader of the junior college in southwestern Indiana. The school says Summers died Sunday.
Current college President Dick Helton says Summers led a tremendous expansion of the school's Vincennes and Jasper campuses and development of its Aviation Technology Center in Indianapolis.
After retiring as president, Summers continued teaching psychology at both Vincennes and Indiana University. He also was chairman of the Red Skelton Museum Foundation Board that this year opened a museum honoring the comedian in his hometown of Vincennes.
