Alumni, So Dear

Darling Deacon: Maddox Harrell

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-year-old Maddox Harrell, son of Brian (’95) and Caroline Harrell. This picture is from the invitation to his fifth birthday party.  With his miniature Harley, top hat, and bow-tie, Maddox set the stage for his Wake Forest themed party.  The Deacon even stopped by for a special appearance!  We hope Maddox continues to love and celebrate Wake Forest all year long!

We are excited to share another darling deacon soon.

Whether you are seeing it for the first time or you have lost count of how many times you have watched it, don’t miss this opportunity to cool down from a hot summer and gather along with other Wake alumni families and friends to enjoy the campus premiere of Disney’s animated musical, Frozen: Sing-A-Long.

The movie begins at 4:00 p.m. in Benson’s Pugh Auditorium. Our Frozen party will be an informal gathering beginning at 3:00 p.m. in the courtyard between Tribble Hall and the Benson Center. The party will include Frozen-themed refreshments and activities. Dressing as your favorite Frozen character is encouraged!

Registration is $6.00 per person. Spaces are limited, therefore registration may close if capacity is reached. In case of inclement weather, we will gather in Benson at 3:00 p.m.

Register here to join Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and friends for Frozen fun!

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, .
