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 Deacons are the Engelhardt’s; 4-and-a-half-year-old Charlotte Engelhardt and 5-month-old Isaiah Engelhardt. Mark Engelhardt (MBA ’99) sent these photos to us after the family’s trip to South Bend, Indiana to see Wake Forest play Notre Dame in Fall 2012. The family lives in Columbus, Ohio. Mark wrote that, “regardless of the [game’s] outcome, the signs always ring true!”

Charlotte Engelhardt holds her sign in front of Notre Dame stadium.

Isaiah Engelhardt cheers on the Deacs from inside the stadium.

The Engelhardt family: Moira Konrad, Isaiah Engelhardt, Mark Engelhardt (MBA, ’99), and Charlotte Engelhardt.

We are excited to share another darling deacon next week.
