A funeral service will be held in Shreveport, Louisiana, on June 15 for Michael Montoya, a graduate student who died June 7 in Winston-Salem. Services will begin at 1 p.m. at St. Michael the Archangel Chapel at The Cathedral of St. John Berchmanns. Memorials may be made in Michael’s memory to the Austin Street Shelter in Dallas, www.austinstreet.org/donate_form.html.
If a campus memorial service is scheduled, an email will be sent to faculty, staff and students. The Office of the Chaplain is discussing a possible campus service with Michael’s family.
Michael was a student in the Master of Arts program in mathematics. He received a Bachelor of Science in mathematics in 2011 at Wake Forest.

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
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.
