pennantIn 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. 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 five month old twins Bays and Hampton Bruton. Their parents, Johna (Hughes) Bruton (’97) and Richard Bruton were kind enough to share these adorable photos with us.   The first photo with the hats was taken when the boys were three weeks old, and Bays is on the left in tan and Hampton is on the right in blue.  The picture of the boys in the Deacon gear was taken at three and a half months, this time Hampton is on the left in black and Bays is on the right in gold.  The outfits were a gift from aunt Anna Gregory Wagoner Taylor (’94, JD ’99) and the basketball socks were a gift from aunt Betsy Allen Scott (’97).   Bays and Hampton are tiny Deacons now, but they already have a lot of love for Wake Forest!

We are excited to share another darling deacon soon.

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.
