From the Director of Athletics – July 2019


As your family prepares to embark on its Wake Forest journey, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome on behalf of the entire Athletic Department. We are extremely honored your son/daughter has chosen to call Wake Forest home, and we look forward to helping him/her excel, both academically and athletically.

I would also like to welcome you to Deacon Digest! This quarterly email—specifically for parents and families of student-athletes—is designed to share the latest Wake Forest Athletics news and updates. This concept was first suggested by members of the Deacon Club’s Parents’ Athletic Advisory Council. This group rightfully believed that the information shared with them at their meetings would be valuable for all parents of student-athletes to receive, and we couldn’t agree more!

The content presented in Deacon Digest will be beneficial as you follow your child’s career with us, as well as our program’s progress. We want each of you to be aware of and fully understand the various resources that our department offers your child, so that you can help encourage him or her to take full advantage of all that is available. In addition, this newsletter will serve as a source for significant accomplishments of our teams and student-athletes.

We look forward to sharing these important items with you. If you would like to make a suggestion about matters of which you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Go Deacs!

John Currie
