The Office of Parent Programs wants to wish all Demon Deacon men a Happy Father’s Day. Whether you are a WFU dad, stepdad, grandfather, or any older male role model for one of our students, we honor you and wish you a wonderful weekend.
There is a great story on the web about some very talented and special Wake Forest dads: “For Father’s Day, three Wake Forest dads talk about the gifts their children have given to them – as well as the world.”
There is also the remarkable story “The Gift” in the Wake Forest Magazine about our Coach Walter donating his kidney to ailing player Kevin Jordan. Have tissues nearby as you read.
Some Wake Foresters will be enjoying the annual Father’s Day Father-Son basketball camp with Coach Jeff Bzdelik this weekend. Campers arrive this evening, will spend the night in South residence hall, and will be put through drills and activities with Coach Bzdelik and his staff. For many Deac Dads, this is a cherished yearly tradition.
Enjoy these stories, and enjoy your Wake Forest students this weekend! Happy Father’s Day to all!
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
