In the Alumni Office, we love seeing the demon deacon children of alumni! (Or pictures of alumni when they were little deacons themselves.)
And we figured we weren’t the only ones. Each week, we will be featuring “darling deacons” here on Alumni, So Dear. It’s a chance for alumni parents to share with the Wake Forest community pictures of their children in all of their Black & Gold gear. We’re happy for alumni to take a walk down memory lane and send in any childhood Wake Forest photos of themselves, too.
This week’s Darling Deacon is 2-year-old Claire Covington, daughter of Kyle Covington (’01) and Suzanne Steele Covington (’01, MD ’05). She is pictured here wearing her Halloween costume with some of the Wake Forest cheerleaders at the WFU vs BC basketball game earlier this year. Her father Kyle wrote in an email that “Claire is a true deacon…she enjoys singing the fight song and alma mater and yelling ‘Go Deacs!'”
We are excited to share another darling deacon next week.
Would you like to be considered for darling deacon of the week? Email your photo and the names of those pictured, your name and class year, and any other related information to email@example.com. Photos should incorporate Wake Forest in some way for publication.
The Office of Alumni Engagement’s mission is to find exciting new ways to connect Wake Forest alumni, friends and family. Once a Deac, always a Deac – and we’re here for you. Each day we leap out of bed humming the fight song, ready to create the moments that keep the spirit of Wake Forest present in your world.
