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. Over the next several weeks, 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.

Our second Darling Deacon is Matt Simmons.

Matt’s parents, Brandon and Laurel (’00) Simmons, brought him along to the Welcome Reception for Provost Kersh in Washington, D.C. on October 17. Matt’s uncle is Adam Parker (’10) and his grandfather, Professor of Law Wilson Parker, teaches in the Law School here at Wake Forest. Brandon, Laurel, and Matt live in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

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 alumni [at] wfu [dot] edu.
