Dungy will kick-off the inaugural event of the university’s Leadership Project. The mission of the Leadership Project is to invite leaders to Wake Forest who will share their personal principles, triumphs, and challenges.  In turn, students and attendees are encouraged to use that information to develop their skills and talents in order to help their communities in meaningful ways.

WFDD’s Keri Brown recently spoke with Tony Dungy by phone from his home in Tampa, Florida to talk about his career and upcoming visit to Winston-Salem.

Tony Dungy talks about brain injuries & the NFL, if he will ever coach again, and why strong leadership skills are so important at home and on the field.

Tony Dungy is a former NFL coach and current NBC analyst. He will speak in Wait Chapel at Wake Forest University March 26 at 6:30 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
