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 8-month-old Elliott Nabavi, son of Ali Nabavi and Karen Roberts (’01). Karen shared with us that, “He was born April 28, 2012, but already he is a Demon Deacons fan! Elliott and his parents live in Washington, DC, where Karen is currently a stay at home mom, and Ali is an IT Specialist at the Library of Congress. Elliott looks forward to taking his first trip to campus soon!”

We are excited to share another darling deacon next week.
