Our newest Distinguished Alumni share WFU memories
As Cherin C. Poovey (P '08) writes in this month's newsletter, the newest recipients of Wake Forest's Distinguished Alumni Award embody the spirit of Pro Humanitate through service to the community and their alma mater. Humanitarian, public servant and entrepreneur -- they are friends many of you might remember.
The Rev. Michael "Mike" Aiken ('71) oversees the Greensboro Urban Ministry, a nonprofit providing emergency food and shelter to the needy. Lisbeth "Libba" Clark Evans ('74, MBA '78) is a businesswoman with a heart for women's issues and cultural heritage. Overseeing the nation's top collegiate sports marketing firm, Ben Sutton Jr. ('80, JD '83, P '14) has maintained his devotion to the University and Winston-Salem in founding and growing a powerhouse company here.
At a gala dinner in a 1920s barn Feb. 17 at WinMock at Kinderton, these honored alumni shared their love for Wake Forest. Read about them and enjoy videos and photos from an event that reminded us how proud we are to be Demon Deacons.
