RALEIGH, NC (June 8, 2019) – Today, Congressman Price released a statement on the passing of long-time University of North Carolina administrator, Raymond Dawson who passed away on June 2, 2019.

“I was saddened to learn of long-time UNC administrator Raymond Dawson’s death and want to recognize his lasting contributions, alongside Bill Friday and others with whom he served, to the university and the state,” said Congressman Price. “I first knew Ray as a fellow political scientist years ago and watched with admiration as he became Arts and Sciences Dean at Chapel Hill and then Academic Affairs VP for the UNC system. An astute and effective, if largely unsung, leader, Ray’s legacy of a strong, independent university is one we must vow to protect.”
