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.

This week’s Darling Deacons are the Briggs family siblings: 9-year-old Wilson, 6-year-old Gaston, and 2-year-old Libby. They are the children of Michael (’95) and Kathryn Briggs.

Michael Briggs graduated from Wake in 1995 and his family currently resides in the Orlando, Florida area. This photo was taken in July while the family was passing through Winston-Salem during their summer vacation. It was the children’s first visit to campus. Michael told us that, “Libby was in the group with us and then ran to mommy (the photographer). I think the picture turned out great with her in the foreground.” We agree!

We are excited to share another darling deacon next week.
