Mr. Terry was born January 7, 1950, in Charlotte, North Carolina. He received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University in 1972, where he was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity. He received a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In 1972 he began his work with Duke Power where he assisted with the design and construction of the McGuire Nuclear Station.
