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 Hood sisters. Their father Bradford Hood (’83) wrote in an email, “Amanda Kathryn (now 16) and Hayley Grace (now 18) and I were sitting on the Wait Chapel steps one blustery fall day in 2003. Before attending one of Wake’s football games in late October, early November, we stopped by the campus, grabbed an early lunch, visited the school store, and walked the campus. The other image was a few years earlier when the girls leaned up against one of the trees in The Quad after a home football game.”

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.
