That’s a lot of Deacs!

Last summer members of 12 Wake Forest-loving families reunited in the mountains of Western North Carolina to celebrate and commemorate the 20-year anniversary of their graduation from Wake Forest, writes Andrew Holtgrewe (’97, MSA ’98). With attendees from nine states and from as far away as California and Switzerland, the group of 48 included 17 Deac alumni and 24 future Deacs.

“Our biannual tradition since 2009, these reunions have allowed us to reconnect and share memories while, more importantly, passing along the Wake Forest tradition to the next generation of future Demon Deacons,” says Holtgrewe. “Can’t wait for 2019! Go Deacs!”
