Alumni, So Dear

Quest for the Golden Deac

Triad Alumni looking for fun and creative ways to spend quality time with their children are invited to campus for a family-friendly, scavenger hunt-style event – the Quest for the Golden Deac – on Thursday, July 17, at 6:00 pm.

Teams will race across the Wake Forest campus in search of points and clues leading to the Golden Deacon and great prizes. Registration is $10 per person and includes a boxed picnic dinner and post-Quest refreshments.

Register to participate in the Quest!

Darling Deacon: Mihir Narang

pennantIn 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. 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 five-month-old Mihir Narang, son of Abhishek Narang (MBA ’08) and Poonam Dsouza (MBA ’10). Mihir is their first child and we are glad to see him dressed in such stylish Wake Forest attire!

We are excited to share another darling deacon soon.

Christman Biographical Website Launched

A new biographical website will celebrate the career of Chaplain Emeritus Edgar D. Christman (’50, JD ’53) and wife Jean Christman (’51). The site, www.edchristman.com, is written by Carolyn Christman with contributions from friends, family members, and colleagues.

Ed and Jean arrived on the old campus as students in the late 1940s and have spent their lives as part of Wake Forest. Ed served as Baptist Student Union Director and Baptist Campus Minister during the 1950s, Assistant Chaplain (1961-68), and then as University Chaplain (1969-2003). The Christmans are now happily retired at Salemtowne community, still close to the campus.

The website will collect stories and memories of the Christman years. It gives the opportunity for anyone to read – and contribute to – this grass-roots biography of two remarkable people. It will also become part of the University’s history through preservation in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Special Collections and Archives.

For more information, please contact Carolyn Christman, .
