Big day of celebration @wfuniversity! The Wake Will Lead campaign passed the $1 billion milestone. What pushed us over?A $1.5 million gift from Arnold Palmer’s Trust to endow a professorship in literature pushed the campaign past this noteworthy mark. President Hatch announced that Dean Franco, who has taught in the Wake Forest English Department since 2001 and currently serves as the Director of the Humanities Institute, will be the first to hold the Winifred W. Palmer Professorship in Literature. The endowed professorship, named in memory of Mr. Palmer’s late wife, is one of 52 endowed positions established during the Wake Will Lead campaign.
Raise a glass of the finest to all who made the campaign success possible! Our Wake Forest Magazine team is excited. #GoDeacs
