Under the knife

Paul Zingg out for unspecified amount of time

Chico State President Paul Zingg is recovering from heart bypass surgery performed at Enloe Medical Center on Sunday (March 15), according to a press notice from the university. His doctors said they expect a full recovery by Zingg, 69, after an unspecified recuperation period.

California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White is working with the president’s office to determine some type of interim leadership during Zingg’s recovery.

An update on the situation will be made “as soon as possible” the notice said. Zingg has served as the Chico State president since 2004.
