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 10-month-old Grace Gottfried, daughter of Christopher Gottfried (’04) and Nicole Berry Gottfried (’03). Grace’s grandmother Lynn Berry (’80) and great grandmother Frances Berry (’75 MA) also graduated from Wake Forest. Nicole wrote in an email that in this picture “Grace is ready to go cheer on the Deacs at the Joel! She loves to clap along to the fight song.”

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 Photos should incorporate Wake Forest in some way for publication.
