Celebration Friday

It’s the end of the week and we are finishing it out on several very happy notes.

Our Police Chief, Regina Lawson, is a finalist for Campus Safety Magazine’s Director of the Year award.  Most of our parents will likely never meet Chief Lawson, but the Parent Programs office works with her a lot, and we can tell you that this recognition is richly deserved.  Chief Lawson is unflinchingly committed to the safety and well-being of this campus and the protection of our students and their property.  She is a terrific advocate and she and her staff are as hardworking as they come.  There is a nice article about her in the Winston-Salem Journal; hope you’ll take a look at it.

Wake Forest will celebrate its birthday next week – our 178th in fact (don’t we look great for our age?)  As told by our News Service, “a group of young alumni who work at the university saw the need to throw their Mother, So Dear a birthday party, collectively deciding that they would feel pretty bad if they only celebrated their mother’s birthday once every 25 years. After months of brainstorming and planning, they will host a week-long celebration, culminating on Friday, Feb. 3, the day on which Wake Forest admitted its first students.”  You can read more about our WFU birthday party online, and we hope your students will participate in the fun.

Finally, and on a personal note, one person on campus who is a dear friend of the Parent Programs office  is celebrating a special birthday today.  We won’t name names, but know that we are sending out our very best birthday wishes.
