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 third Darling Deacons are Brayden and Keegan.

Brayden and Keegan are the twin boys of Elizabeth Diorio McCormack (’02) and her husband. The photo was taken on September 29 when the Deacs faced the Blue Devils at BB&T Field. The boys were about 4 months old at the time. While Elizabeth is a Wake Forest alumna, her husband graduated from Duke in 1997, hence the house divided rivalry! Elizabeth says, “We get along MOST of the time. :) We are big supporters of our schools and of each other’s school, because we love the ACC in general. We are huge sports fans!”

The family currently live in Concord, New Hampshire. Elizabeth’s brother, David Diorio, graduated from Wake Forest in 2006.

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.
