Perhaps the best way to start a campaign such as #CCUfamily is to feature someone that everyone seems to know. If you have spent any time on campus the past few years, you know we are doing just that.
Deontre' Wynn is a campus favorite, one of those people who knows just about everyone and who is well-liked and looked up to. A native of Charleston, S.C., he selected Coastal because Conway seemed to be the perfect distance from his hometown. As he begins his senior year, Deontre' is already very much ingrained into the CCU fabric. Besides his popularity on campus for just being himself, he contributes to our community each day. He is part of the Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity and is involved with the Dalton and Linda Floyd Mentoring Program. Deontre' also pours his talents into a campus job as he serves as the graphic designer for the Office of Training, Development and Service Excellence.
