Parents in the Charlotte area will have an opportunity to hear from “Mr. Wake Forest,” Ed Wilson (’43) who is our Provost Emeritus, and Andy Chan, Vice President for Career Development. Mark your calendars – these are some of the brightest stars in the Wake Forest constellation.
Dr. Wilson is one of the most cherished members of the Wake Forest family. He was a gifted teacher and administrator and is known for keeping the original values of ‘friendliness and honor’ from the Old Campus (in the town of Wake Forest, NC) and helping infuse them into the campus culture when we moved the school to Winston-Salem.
Andy Chan is a newer face on our campus, having come in the summer of 2009 to lead Wake Forest’s efforts for the personal and career development of our students. He has quickly made an enormous impact on our campus, bringing a greater breadth and depth of services to our students to help them identify their strengths, talents and passions and match their career search in those areas.
They will be interviewed by our alumna Maria Henson (’82), a Pulitzer Prize winner and associate vice president and editor-at-large at Wake Forest. They will discuss how faculty members have long served as mentors to students and how this continues to serve as a core mission of Wake Forest.
This is a star panel – and I hope parents in the area will attend. It’s going to be a great evening!
