KA brothers wanted to show Lins he has "the whole Wake Forest community behind him."

Band of Brothers

The Pro Humanitate spirit prevails in rising junior Lins Barwick, as well as in the friends and family who lined the corridors of a nearby hospital, where Lins was recovering from injuries sustained during an off-campus shooting on June 11. Support for Lins and his family has taken myriad forms, including a social media fundraising campaign organized by his Kappa Alpha (KA) fraternity brothers.

As he continues on his painful recovery process, Lins is being praised for his "IVtitude," a reference to his name, Plato Collins Barwick IV. (He is one of a long line of Wake Foresters.) His family has expressed gratitude for the Wake Forest community's support, which is so vast that an orphan in Ghana whom Lins befriended earlier this year has been remembered through the fundraising. Please keep Lins and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Maria Henson
