3 2 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e New school a natural partnership Engineering a r esource WAKE FOREST and Virginia Tech (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University) have announced plans to establish a joint School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences. The school will provide a needed biomedical engineering resource for southwest Virginia, northwest North Carolina, and eastern Tennessee. Wake Forest has long sought to add an engineering program, either directly or through affiliation. Virginia Tech gains access to a medical school and its biomedical researchers. The school is aimed at maximizing collaboration among researchers and educators in biology, engineering, and medicine to advance fundamental discoveries in medicine and biology and lead to improvements in health care technologies. President Thomas K. Hearn Jr. said the new school will aid in the transformation of Winston-Salem s economy. The school will strengthen Wake Forest s intellectual resources, thereby strengthening the capabilities of the Piedmont Triad Research Park. This is a natural partnership between Virginia Tech, which has no human medical school, and Wake Forest, which does not have an engineering school, said Charles W. Steger, Virginia Tech president. We are extremely excited about affiliating with a highly respected university like Wake Forest. To support the school, Wake Forest School of Medicine is establishing a Center for Biomedical Engineering with participation by thirteen departments, which are putting up $1.5 million to launch the Center. The Center will administer the program at Wake Forest. Virginia Tech already has a parallel Center for Biomedical Engineering with more than twenty active faculty members. We have set goals of ranking in the top tier of medical schools in NIH funding and in annual licensing revenues, said Dr. Richard Dean, senior vice president for health affairs of Wake Forest. Currently, all of the top NIHfunded institutions have an engineering school or biomedical engineering department. This new school will address the goals of both institutions. If the planning proceeds as hoped, the universities will jointly admit the first students in the fall of The plan envisions jointly awarding master of science, PhD and MD/PhD degrees, with the names and seals of both institutions appearing on the diplomas. The planners envision a student body of at least eighty to one hundred students within five years. Students will be in residence at one or the other university, but biomedical engineering courses taught at one campus will be offered on the other campus via distance learning. Faculty members at one campus will be granted adjunct appointments on the other campus. Operationally, the school will be run jointly by Virginia Tech s College of Engineering, the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, and Wake Forest School of Medicine.

4 3 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e The art of giving Gallery naming honors Phil and Charlotte Hanes IN RECOGNITION of their contributions to the arts, Wake Forest has named its art gallery for Winston-Salem businessman R. Philip Hanes and his wife, Charlotte. The gallery, which opened in the Scales Fine Arts Center in 1982, was dedicated as the Charlotte and Philip Hanes Art Gallery on September 7. Philip Hanes, 75, is chairman emeritus of Hanes Dye and Finishing, a company founded by his father, but he is better known for his leadership and support of the arts. He helped shape the N.C. School of the Arts, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Arts, and the Roger L. Stevens Center for the Performing Arts in Winston-Salem. He received the National Medal of Arts from President George Bush in 1991 for his role as the founder of community arts programs across the country. He received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Wake Forest in Charlotte Hanes serves on the University s Board of Visitors for the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Phil Hanes has done much for the arts in Winston- Salem, North Carolina, and the country, said President Thomas K. Hearn Jr. He and Charlotte have been generous in sharing their art collection with Wake Forest. We are pleased to have their names grace our fine arts gallery as a permanent expression of their service and our gratitude. In 1991, Hanes and his wife donated to the University their 1820s plantation-style house, and committed through their wills their personal art collection and twenty-six acres of property that adjoin the Wake Forest President s House. Phil and Charlotte Hanes have been very good friends to the Wake Forest art department through the years, said Margaret Smith, chair of Wake Forest s art department. Besides their very generous donation of paintings to the college, they frequently have opened up their home to our classes so that our students can see their remarkable collection of American art and learn from Phil how a collector goes about purchasing really significant art. We are delighted that the Haneses will be recognized by having the Scales Fine Arts Center gallery named in their honor. Hanes started collecting American art in 1949 after studying art in college. His private collection ranges from a 1762 painting by John Singleton Copley to contemporary works. W a k e F o r e s t December 2001

5 4 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e From top: Mary Easley, Richard Sears, and Herman Eure. Faculty, alumni honored Don t live in fear, says Convocation speaker TWO PROFESSORS and two alumni were honored during Opening Convocation September 13. North Carolina First Lady Mary Easley, a 1972 graduate of the College and 1975 graduate of the School of Law, was the keynote speaker during the program in Wait Chapel. Richard Sears, Wake Forest Professor of political science, was presented with the Donald O. Schoonmaker Faculty Award for Community Service. Sears was recognized for his contributions to the University and the community. Since he came to Wake Forest in 1964, Sears has spent his free time volunteering with numerous community organizations. Herman Eure (PhD 74), chair of the biology department, received the Jon Reinhardt Award for Excellence in Teaching. Eure began teaching at Wake Forest in He was nominated for the award by former students. President Thomas K. Hearn Jr. also presented two alumni with Marcellus E. Waddill Excellence in Teaching Awards during convocation. The 2001 recipients, Jeffrey Morgan (MAEd 95) of Winston-Salem and Elizabeth Fair Goffigon ( 93) of Sparks, Maryland, were each chosen in May to receive the $20,000 awards. See related stories, page 38 and 40. Speaking two days after the September 11 attacks, Easley urged the audience not to live in fear, but to live fully. Every tragedy, every moment of inexplicable pain, every minute of sorrow, every one of life s little risks that we confront is really the wrapping around a gift for us, she said. It is at once a gift of redemption for us as we share part of ourselves with another, and the fulfillment of a promise from a loving God. It is a perpetually renewing opportunity wrapped in risk. Wachovia gift endows Babcock scholarships Program will enhance student body diversity Wachovia is providing a $2 million gift to Wake Forest University for its Babcock Graduate School of Management to endow the Wachovia Scholars Program, which will furnish scholarships and career assistance to MBA students for the purpose of creating a more diverse student body. It is the largest single gift designated for the Babcock School since it was founded in Annually, the program will provide up to six scholarships for underrepresented full-time MBA students to cover up to 100 percent of tuition, books, and room and board costs. R. Charles Moyer, dean of the Babcock School and GMAC Insurance Chair of Finance, said the school will work closely with Wachovia to recruit prospective students who are interested in careers in financial services. Scholarship recipients will have a Wachovia mentor during their two years at the Babcock School and will have summer internship opportunities with Wachovia. This gift from Wachovia is a keystone in our strategy to attract a high-quality, diverse student body to our MBA program, Moyer said. It is further evidence of the strong bond among the Babcock School at Wake Forest University, Wachovia and Winston-Salem. Wachovia Chairman L.M. Baker Jr. said the commitment exemplifies Wachovia s support of all levels of education and the company s desire to recruit a diverse professional employee base. Academic and professional success most often are achieved through capitalizing on opportunity, Baker said. Wachovia hopes this gift proffers the Babcock School broader opportunities in attracting exceptional, diverse talent to its program and helps build on our longstanding synergy with the university.

6 5 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Babcock business FORBES MAGAZINE has ranked the Babcock Graduate School of Management No. 3 in the nation among MBA programs with total costs of less than $95,000 a year. The rankings measure return on investment, or how quickly MBA students can expect to recoup the investment made in their MBA education after they graduate, and are based on salary gains of 1996 MBA graduates over the past five years. BABCOCK IS RANKED No. 26 in the world and No. 22 among U.S. schools in a survey of executive MBA programs released in October by Business Week magazine. BABCOCK RANKED NO. 39 in the world and No. 25 among U.S. schools in the first international survey of executive MBA programs conducted by the Financial Times of London. The ranking is based in part on surveys of alumni and measures of career progression of the graduates, diversity and international experience of the faculty and students, and faculty research. THE SCHOOL WELCOMED 271 first-year students into its four MBA programs for the academic year. Thirtytwo percent of the full-time program s one hundred and seven first-year students are international, and the interna- tional students represent seventeen countries. Both the percentage of international students and the number of countries represented mark new highs for the Babcock School. NASDAQ HAS NAMED the Angell Center for Entrepreneurship one of its five Centers of Entrepreneurial Excellence for Stan Mandel, director of the Angell Center, said, Wake Forest s selection as a Nasdaq Center of Entrepreneurial Excellence is a great reward for the innovative programs we have implemented in the past three years. THE BABCOCK SCHOOL has renamed and restructured its executive program into the Fast-Track Executive MBA Program, which began with a new class in August. Some of the changes to the program are structural: The completion time has been tightened to seventeen months, and students will meet for full Fridays and Saturdays two weekends per month at the Worrell Professional Center. A faculty committee also has made refinements to the curriculum. Building on the school s strength of offering cross-functional management education, faculty members have created a highly integrated, modulebased, team-oriented curriculum with a focus on general management skills. At the Calloway School THE UNIVERSITY HELD a groundbreaking ceremony October 4 for an addition to Calloway Hall that will bring all operations of the Calloway School of Business and Accountancy together under one roof for the first time. The Calloway School will occupy the entire five-story F.M. Kirby Wing, named after the F.M. Kirby Foundation for its $5 million donation. The addition will include classroom and office space, room for group meetings, and an entrepreneur center designed to foster business skills in students from all areas of study. ACCOUNTING STUDENTS in the Calloway School rank second in the nation for their performance on the May 2000 Certified Public Accountant exam. The Calloway students passage rate 71.9 percent is three times the national average. The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) ranks schools in two categories: those with graduate programs in accounting and those with undergraduate programs only. Wake Forest, with its five-year program to earn a bachelor s and master s degree in accounting, is ranked among schools with advanced degrees. Wake Forest s passage rate has been either first or second in the nation since the Calloway School began offering a master s degree in accountancy in THE CALLOWAY SCHOOL S accounting program was also recently ranked 17th among all undergraduate accounting programs in the nation by the CPA Personnel Report s 20th Annual Survey of Accounting Professors. SIX NEW MEMBERS were named to the Board of Visitors of the Calloway School. They are: Emily Neese Babcock ( 81) of Winston- Salem, chief financial officer of Universal Solutions; Cynthia Evans Tessien of Winston- Salem, corporate finance director of Inmar Enterprises Inc.; Moira E. Davis ( 89) of New York, New York, vice president and associate media director of BBDO, New York; Patrick G. Jones ( 91) of Atlanta, executive vice president of Ptek Holdings Inc.; Charles L. Melman of Charlotte, partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers, L.L.P.; and Caroline Murray of Raleigh, senior consultant with Best Practices Group of GE Mortgage Insurance.

7 6 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Hatching ideas Business incubators nurture entrepreneurship LONG GONE are the days when a young person could land a job with a large corporation and expect to stay securely in place until retirement. Today s climate of mergers, acquisitions, downsizing, and overseas manufacturing relocations makes longevity at even the most blue-chip of companies a perilous prospect at best. That fact has hit home especially hard in Winston- Salem, which has suffered the loss or reduction in force of large and venerable employers such as Piedmont Airlines, Hanes, R.J. Reynolds, and, most recently, Wachovia. Relatively small entrepreneurial firms now account for well over half of America s job growth. As a result, savvy cities are concentrating their economic development efforts away from the large and the industrial and toward the small and the science-and technology-oriented. Winston- Salem has a sound base by having strong health-care and technology resources. To assist in the city s economic redevelopment and provide its business students with a more entrepreneurial focus, the University in November announced a broad-based Business Development Initiative which will encompass: l new incubator projects at the Calloway and Babcock schools; l a Babcock-sponsored Social Entrepreneurship Initiative; l the School of Medicine s technology transfer service, which works to bring healthrelated discoveries developed and patented by Medical Center scientists to the marketplace; and l Idealliance, formerly known as the North Carolina Emerging Technology Alliance, which is developing the Piedmont Triad Research Park downtown and pursuing hightech business projects in hopes of building a Research Triangle Park-like sector in the Triad. The Babcock School s incubator project, which will operate under the auspices of its Angell Center for Entrepreneurship, is designed to foster entrepreneurial education at Wake Forest and an entrepreneurial spirit in the Triad by providing personalized services and relationships to growthoriented, early-stage ventures. The incubator will be located in an existing building directly across from the University Parkway entrance to campus. The building will offer Internet access and space for growing businesses. The incubator will house three to five start-up businesses at its inception, and each business that enters the incubator will have twelve months to grow and launch its business. Babcock School faculty, students, and outside advisors will participate in the selection of businesses for the incubator and provide mentoring and consulting assistance. The incubator also will provide assistantships for Babcock students and opportunities for faculty research. Paul Briggs, a former executive with Duke Energy, directs the incubator. The Babcock School has an agreement with the Triad Entrepreneurial Initiative to house winners of that group s annual business plan competition. Babcock s Social Entrepreneurship Initiative is designed to harness the resources of the Wake Forest community in partnership with local nonprofit agencies to improve the services provided to the Winston-Salem community.

8 7 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Incubating students is Calloway focus KATIE FREDERICK, a senior business major from Bethesda, Maryland, spent the summer working for a Winston-Salem venture capital firm that helps small companies get off the ground. She didn t fill coffee cups or keep the copier humming; instead, she analyzed business plans for viability and helped make decisions on whether to grant funding. Later she got the chance to work directly with one of the start-up companies, helping develop marketing and on-line strategies for the launch of a new pharmaceutical product. Frederick s summer job is a great illustration of the hottest topic these days in business: entrepreneurship. Business faculty members say entrepreneurship is one of the fastest-growing academic programs in business schools around the country and the world, at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Recognizing the demand in the marketplace for entrepreneurial skills, the Calloway School of Business and Accountancy is hatching an idea to start a student incubator on campus that would allow teams of students from both the business school and the college to work together on developing new business ventures. The Center for Undergraduate Entrepreneurship, which should begin in Fall 2002, will have its own space in the F.M. Kirby Wing of Calloway Hall when the addition is completed in The center is part of a broader University-wide Business Development Initiative announced in November. There s a real demand in the marketplace for a better understanding of how to be more successful entrepreneurially, said Page West, associate professor of business and head of the Calloway project. This isn t just dot.com fever, which has fortunately come and gone. If you look at fundamental economics in the U.S., small growth-oriented entrepreneurial firms have been the firms that have created new jobs on a net basis over the last twenty-five years. Large organizations, the Fortune 500 companies, have seen a net reduction in jobs over that same period of time. Even those Fortune 500 companies are looking for ways to think like entrepreneurs, West said, so it makes sense to prepare students in practical ways for this new business environment. The new center is part of a spectrum of entrepreneurship projects going on in the Calloway School, including a curriculum change that allows students to take West s course on Entrepreneurial Strategy in the junior year. A natural followup to that change is the establishment of a new internship program that will help students find entrepreneurial summer jobs between their junior and senior years. Frederick s job at Academy Venture Funds was a bit of a test case for this new strategy. She took the entrepreneur course last year and said she wouldn t have been prepared for the job without it. Thinking like an entrepreneur makes you look at business from all different angles, Frederick said. I think the entrepreneurial skills I ve learned in class and on the job will be useful for whatever I decide to do and will definitely give me an advantage. Jack Wilkerson, dean of the Calloway School, said that when he started out as a young accountant, he could afford to do the grunt jobs and prove himself as he worked his way up. Now, companies expect new hires to add value from day one. The economy has driven that, he said. Companies are getting lean and mean, and they have to ask themselves every day if their actions result in value. This business environment is forcing everyone to think in an entrepreneurial way. My hope is that every Calloway student will develop an entrepreneurial perspective on what they do. The Center will not work as a typical incubator in the business world does, West said. Those incubators generally give new ventures space, technology, and other resources they need for a specified period of time. If the idea hatches, great. If not, the incubator pulls the plug and moves on. Our focus is less on incubating a company than it is on incubating the students themselves, West said. We want to teach them to think more entrepreneurially, to develop entrepreneurial skills, and really to put them in a position by the time they graduate that either they can continue on with the venture they ve been working on, or they will be ready to work in small businesses or other entrepreneurial situations in industry. The hallmark of the center is that it will be open to students from the college as well as the Calloway school. Creative business ideas don t just come from the business school, West said. I have students from other departments call me who have great ideas but don t have the training they need to develop a business. We want to put Calloway students who have been trained in starting, developing, and operating a business in partnership with students from other departments who may have interesting insights.

9 8 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Up two notches Wake Forest ranks 26th among 249 national universities in the new edition of U.S. News and World Report s annual guide, America s Best Colleges. The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) tied Wake Forest for the 26th spot. Wake Forest was ranked 28th in last year s guide. The annual guide recognized Wake Forest for its small classes, low student/faculty ratio, and freshman retention rate. The University also fared well in the alumni giving and financial resources categories, and placed 30th in the listing of Great Schools at Great Prices. The list evaluates which colleges and universities offer the best value based on a formula that relates a school s academic quality, as indicated by its U.S. News ranking, with the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of financial aid. Divinity scholars Five receive prestigious award THE DIVINITY SCHOOL has chosen five first-year students to receive its most prestigious merit-based scholarships the Samuel and Sarah Wait Graduate Fellowships in Theology and Ministry. The recipients of the Wait Fellowships are Michael Gregg, Christopher Lawson, Nicholas Stepp, John Templeton, and David Mark Tolliver. The Wait Fellowships were established in 1999, the Divinity School s inaugural year. They are named in honor of the first president of Wake Forest and his wife. The fellowships cover the entire cost of tuition and fees for study at the Divinity School. They are renewable for up to three years, which is the length of the full-time master of divinity program. The school s faculty selects recipients from a field of students nominated for their academic excellence and exceptional promise for Christian ministry. Gregg is a 2001 graduate of Belmont University and is a member of Crievewood Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee Lawson, a 2001 graduate of Bluefield College, is a member of First Baptist Church of Bluefield, West Virginia. Stepp is a 2001 graduate of Carson- Newman College and a member of First Baptist Church of Jefferson City, Tennessee. Templeton, a 2001 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a member of Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. Tolliver is a 1999 graduate of the College of William and Mary and a member of Southview Baptist Church in Herndon, Virginia. Med School research support soars Outside support for Wake Forest School of Medicine soared past the landmark $100 million mark in the year ending June 30, reaching $105,993,513. The nearly $106 million represents a 12.2 percent over last year s total of $94,466,839. Most of the outside support was for research and training, reflecting the growing research emphasis at the medical school. High honors The School of Law s LLM program for international students ranked eighth among U.S. law schools in a ranking by a private student-recruiting firm, American Universities Admissions Program. The LLM ranking is based on program quality, admissions rate, world image of the university, average starting salary, and satisfaction index of international students.

10 9 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Groundbreaking r emembered Honoring those who made the move IN CELEBRATION of the fiftieth anniversary of the groundbreaking for the Reynolda Campus, Wake Forest held a luncheon and special program on October 29. The program brought together retired faculty members who were teaching in 1951, and the relatives and descendants of trustees and dignitaries involved in the groundbreaking ceremony. Photographs and other memorabilia from the groundbreaking were on display. Wake Forest College broke ground on its new campus on October 15, Wake Forest moved from the town of Wake Forest and opened the campus five years later, in Except for the founding of Wake Forest, this was the most important event in the history of the school, said Senior Vice President Edwin Wilson ( 43), who attended the groundbreaking ceremony as a first-year English professor. For us to honor the descendants of those who made the move possible and re-create the mood of that day is important. Descendants and relatives who participated in the program included former governor of North Carolina Robert (Bob) Scott, son of William Kerr Scott who was governor of North Carolina from and present at the groundbreaking; Barbara Babcock Millhouse, daughter of Charles and Mary Reynolds Babcock, who gave the Reynolda property to Wake Forest; Lloyd P. Tate Jr., president of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and great-grandson of R.J. Reynolds; Barbara Tribble Holding, daughter of Harold W. Tribble, president of Wake Forest from ; and Murray C. Greason, a Wake Forest trustee and 1959 graduate. The celebration closely followed the order of the program from 1951, including the menu for the lunch served prior to the groundbreaking, which was a Southern lunch buffet of sliced ham and turkey, mashed potatoes, string beans, and green peppers stuffed with corn and rice. It also included President Tribble s daughter sharing stories about her father, and Scott reading a greeting from Clifton Truman Daniel, grandson of President Harry S. Truman who attended the groundbreaking. Student Government President Jordan Brehove spoke on behalf of Wake Forest students. Above: President Harry S.

11 10 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Kim Boatwright Shirley ( 85) with the first recipients of the John W. Boatwright Scholarship, freshmen Jonathan Blake Adams of Rockwell, North Carolina (left), and Gregory K. Evans of Lexington, North Carolina. Her college fund will help others Boatwright scholarship KIMBERLY BOATWRIGHT Shirley ( 85) has used the funds her father originally set aside for her Wake Forest education to increase a scholarship in his memory. The scholarship was established last year by Shirley and her mother, Jean Boatwright, who lives in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her father was sixty when she was born, and he set up a fund for her because he was afraid he would not live to pay her way through college, Shirley said. Fortunately, he lived to see her graduate from Wake Forest, get married, and have twins, but he let her keep the college fund, which had been accumulating interest for nearly forty years. It was this fund that has enabled me, along with my mother, to establish a scholarship in Dad s name, said Shirley, who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was a top priority of his to ensure that financial reasons would not keep me from attending the college of my choosing. He was blessed with a long life, so I didn t need my college fund to attend Wake Forest. Since I was fortunate enough not to need it for my education, I want to make it available to other students. Her father, John W. Boatwright, died in April 2000 at the age of 96. Shirley and her mother established the scholarship with an initial gift of securities and recently made additional gifts including Shirley s college fund to qualify for a matching grant from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. As part of its commitment to Honoring the Promise: The Campaign for Wake Forest, the foundation is donating $1 for every $3 from individual donors who give between $150,000 and $300,000 to a non-athletic undergraduate scholarship fund. For example, if an individual gives $150,000 to a scholarship fund, the foundation will add $50,000 to that particular fund. Her father greatly valued education, Shirley said, and ensured that she and her three brothers were able to attend top schools. He endowed a chair in economics and a scholarship at his alma mater, William Jewell College, and another scholarship at William and Mary. Dad s strong emphasis on education made this scholarship a natural way to honor him and fulfill my desire to give back to the University so that other students could benefit from the Wake Forest experience that I was privileged to enjoy, said Shirley, who joined the Wake Forest Alumni Council in October. My mother and I want to continue his philosophy of enabling students to pursue their dreams of higher education, and to equip them to be leaders in their communities. Pro Humanitate is very much in keeping with my dad s beliefs, she added. He was convinced that along with the benefits of education came the responsibility to use it to the betterment of society, to give back the gifts of your time, talents, leadership, and resources. Boatwright worked his way through high school and college and graduated from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. He later earned a master s degree in economics from American University and a doctorate in economics from Northwestern University. He was an economist with Standard Oil Company of Indiana for more than twenty-eight years before retiring as its chief economist. W a k e F o r e s t December 2001

12 11 C a m p u s C h r o n i c l e Serving all, not just a few Distinguished Alumnus Doug Bailey ( 60) WHEN THE Reverend Douglass M. Bailey ( 60) returned to campus in October to receive the 2001 Distinguished Alumni Award for his long record of humanitarian work, he returned the credit to Wake Forest and the spirit of that great motto of ours. Pro Humanitate is for all of humanity, not just for a few, said Bailey, rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Memphis, Tennessee. Pro Humanitate I heard that here in your school. I am so convinced and so convicted that this is what we must be doing for humanity for all God s people. Bailey will be returning to campus again for good next month (January) when he becomes director of the new Center for Urban Ministry at the Wake Forest Divinity School and an assistant professor in the school. Bailey brings to the classroom a lifetime of putting the church to work in the community. When Father Doug arrived at Calvary Church in 1978, the downtown parish had been in decline for years following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King and the national urban crises of the 1960s. The church had lost 1,000 members and was fast becoming a museum, he recalled. We decided to open our doors so that everything we did would go out into the city. Twenty years later, we have rebuilt the urban body of Christ. Bailey turned things around by emphasizing worship and education opportunities and the development of urban ministries. The church has grown from 400 members to 2,600, with a staff of thirty and an annual budget of $3.3 million. Ten non-profit agencies started by the church serve the homeless, the mentally ill, those suffering from AIDS, and those addicted to drugs or alcohol. Bailey turned an adjacent empty bank building into an elementary school, started another school for at-risk and suspended students, and opened a child-care center. The church also sponsors a community arts program and an employment program for teens. An indigent burial program provides a final resting place for the city s poorest residents in a cemetery once reserved for the city s wealthiest. A native of Clarksburg, West Virginia, Bailey was recruited to play basketball at Wake Forest by Coach Bones McKinney, but played only briefly. After graduating from Wake Forest, he earned his masters in divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1964 and his doctor of divinity from Rhodes College in Memphis. Bailey said he was recently reminded of the importance of serving others when a poor woman approached him in a hospital emergency room. She saw that I was a minister and she came over to me and said I hope you re never poor. Because when you re poor, you lose your voice. And I said to her, I like to think that I m from a church that helps those who ve lost their voice recover their own voice. I am not for the poor, because that reflects a certain arrogance. And I am not of the poor because I am not poor. But I am with the poor. Most churches have set aside the poor, the disposed, and the marginalized individuals in our society.

The Signature Deacon, signed by students and alumni during the kickoff, will remain on campus permanently. The Babcock and medical school Deacons will be auctioned off later. The Admissions and Welcome Center was named in memory of longtime dean of admissions William G. Starling ( 57), who died June 18. Starling s wife Elinor was joined at the dedication by their son Gray and his wife Layne, and their daughter Jennie Weekley and her husband Mark and daughter Rebecca.

15 14 S p o r t s Prosser plans a full-court press The Deacons huddle prior to a Midnight Madness scrimmage. Unfinished business WAKE FOREST enters the basketball season with an enthusiastic new head coach, a roster full of experience, and plenty of individual talent. But how will all the pieces fit together? We go in with a lot of experience, but also with a lot of question marks, said Skip Prosser, who takes over as head coach after serving as head coach at Xavier for seven highly successful years. Wake Forest returns seven letterwinners including five players who started at least eight games from a team that finished in And with five veteran seniors leading the way, this figures to be one of the more experienced teams in recent Wake Forest history. Those five seniors have a sense of unfinished business as it pertains to their basketball careers, Prosser said. Those five guys, knowing it is their last go-around in college basketball, will have a sense of urgency. The 2002 senior class received its first taste of NCAA Tournament play last season after consecutive NIT appearances. Last year s team jumped out to a 12-0 start including wins over Kansas, Georgia, Richmond, and Virginia. But the Deacons struggled down the stretch, winning just seven of their last 18 games. Gone from that team are its leading rebounder (6-9 Josh Shoemaker, 7.4 rebounds per game), one of the school s alltime leading scorers (6-1 Robert O Kelley, 12.6 points per game), and one of the ACC s top post defenders and most physical players (6-9 Rafael Vidaurreta). Our biggest concern is rebounding, Prosser said. We lose a lot of size in Rafael and Josh. We ll especially miss their size as a defensive presence in the post to go against the (Duke s Carlos) Boozers and the (Maryland s Lonnie) Baxters of the world. And we ll also miss Robert. He took and made a lot of big shots during his career. W a k e F o r e s t December 2001

16 15 S p o r t s What the Deacons do return in is one of the best one-two forward combinations in college basketball. Junior Josh Howard (6-6, 13.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game) was a second team All- ACC selection last season after finishing among the league leaders in steals, field goal percentage, scoring, and rebounding. Howard, who seems to play his best against the top teams, could see his game take off this season in Prosser s up-tempo style. Senior Darius Songaila (6-9, 13.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game), one of the league s strongest players, is a versatile player who can drive to the basket or shoot from the perimeter. The former Lithuanian Olympian enters his senior season with 1,252 career points. Josh and Darius have both been occasionally brilliant, Prosser said. The challenge for both is to be consistently very good. When they are on their game, they can compete with anyone in college basketball. Senior Antwan Scott (6-8, 6.8 ppg., 3.6 rpg.) will be counted on for more minutes this season in the post. Scott, a high-flying shot blocker, played the previous three seasons in the shadows of Vidaurreta and Shoemaker. And while Scott s lack of weight (205 pounds) in the post is a concern, his athleticism should pay dividends in the up-tempo system Prosser has in mind for the Deacons. Songaila, projected to play the power forward spot, could also see minutes at center. It will likely be post defense by committee, Prosser said. The frontcourt will be bolstered by two talented freshmen Jamaal Levy (6-9) and Vytas Danelius (6-8). Both highly touted rookies are expected to contribute immediately. Redshirt freshman Dshamal Schoetz (7-0) was injured in pre-season practice and is out for the year. There are no shortage of candidates at the point guard position, a spot Prosser sees as vital. Seniors Broderick Hicks (6-1, 6.9 ppg., 77 assists) and Ervin Murray (6-5, 2.2 ppg., 84 assists) split time at the point guard position last season, offering contrasting but effective styles. Hicks, who started 18 games, pushes the ball up court and is more of a scoring threat, while Murray is consistently in control and looks to pass first. Sophomore A.W. Hamilton (6-3) saw limited action last season at the point, and incoming freshman Taron Downey (6-2) will also get a chance to compete for playing time. I d like to see someone emerge and take the point guard position by the throat, Prosser said. I put a lot of faith in the point guard and it would be good for someone to seize the position. The Deacons may be even stronger and just as deep at the shooting guard position. Senior Craig Dawson (6-5, 12.5 ppg.) is one of the most prolific and accurate threepoint field goal shooters in school history. Dawson, who started eight games last season after being used as a highscoring sixth man, has 155 career three-pointers to his credit. Junior Steve Lepore (6-5, eligible transfer from Northwestern) is a blue collar player who is also dangerous from beyond the arc. A twoyear starter at Northwestern before sitting out last season, Lepore sank 118 treys in just two seasons with the Wildcats. Craig can shoot the ball as well as anyone in the league, Prosser said. The challenge for Craig is for him to develop into a fullcourt defender. Steve could be a real positive force for us. No one has worked harder preparing himself for the season. The returning players, not to mention the fans, are excited about Prosser s plan to turn the speed of the game up a notch this season. The Deacons plan to get after it on both ends of the court this winter. Prosser hopes the Deacons will develop into an attacking, pressing team on defense, leading to fastbreaks and easy shots on offense. We try to fight for every floorboard. We try to steal the ball every possession. Trap it, and steal it, Skip Prosser: A sense of urgency that s what we try to do. We want to be a team on offense when we re on defense. The Deacons will face a very difficult schedule in , including their first ever Preseason NIT appearance, the ACC/Big 10 Challenge, road games at Kansas and St. John s, and home games versus Cincinnati, Marquette, Richmond, and Minnesota. I am excited about the schedule, Prosser said. I think it is extremely challenging and will hopefully prepare us for the ACC. And should we be in position for an NCAA Tournament berth at the end of the year, it should send the (NCAA Men s Division I Basketball) Committee a message about playing a tough non-conference schedule.

17 16 SEPTEMBER Some were barely awake when they heard the news; others rushed from meetings in Reynolda or classes in Tribble to huddle around televisions and radios. Some were on their way to work in New York and Washington, D.C. Others were abroad, where horrific images from the homeland took on a new perspective. BY CHERIN C.

18 17 After Disaster, Unity and Hope W a k e F o r e s t December 2001

19 18 Regardless of where they were on the morning of September 11, members of the Wake Forest community reacted to the terrorist attacks as the nation did: with fear and outrage, with patriotism and compassion. In the days that followed, students, faculty, staff, and alumni responded to America s worst tragedy in the true spirit of Pro Humanitate. They held prayer vigils and fund drives; they gave the gift of friendship and the gift of blood. They provided medical and spiritual care to the day s victims: the ones on-site and the ones on campus. They tried to help each other make sense of these events, while tensely waiting for news of friends and family who may have been on the planes or in the buildings that were demolished. As word came that at least two alumni were among the confirmed lost, they grieved together, and determined these deaths would not be in vain. Contrary to what you learn from the clock and calendar, our lives do not unfold hour-byhour, day-by-day. Our lives are marked by events of celebration and crisis which are communal and create the common memories which make of us a people, a nation, said President Thomas K. Hearn Jr., at a memorial service on the evening of September 11. The most gripping of these life-marking events are tragic. For all too human reasons, we resist and deny the lessons of the darkness of the soul. The sundial on the old campus spoke for all when it read, I count only the sunny hours. It takes a catastrophe to overcome our reluctance to accept the lessons of human hate. (Read the full text of President Hearn s speech at The year began as one without an academic theme, but all that changed with the events of September 11. Moved and called to action by the nation s tragedy, a group of student leaders organized The Year of Unity and Hope: Pro Humanitate at Work, which will continue throughout the spring semester. The purpose of the theme year is to provide a forum for discussion and education in light of really horrible events, said Jonathan Willingham, a junior from Summerville, South Carolina, and the co-chair of the theme year committee. My generation has always been accused of being apathetic, and the truth is that we have never been challenged like this. This is really our first opportunity to grow as adults as we try to build a framework for understanding how our lives fit into the global community. The theme year opened September 27 with a public forum called Understanding September 11. A panel of faculty experts on the Middle East explained the history of American relations with countries in that region for an audience of more than four hundred people. Other events focused on diplomatic and military responses to the attack. Our main goal is to ensure that we come out of this as better people, not as jaded, bitter people, so every event we have will have an educational focus, Willingham said. Students began work on a theme year web site to offer information about events and a Book of Days. Brian Bell, a senior from Jackson Springs, designed the site, which features a logo designed by senior Melissa McGhie of Miami. F EELING THE I MPACT SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 Brig. Gen. Larry K. Arnold, ('64) was one of the two United States generals who were authorized to shoot down threatening commercial planes over the forty-eight contiguous states. The commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), it was his task to deploy the fighter jets that would have intercepted/shot down the planes in New York and Washington had they gotten there in time. Joann Mary Klein, Rockville Centre, New York, mother of Beth Klein ( 00): This evening when we arrived at home and listened to the message that you left for us to check on our daughter Beth and our family, we were very moved by your concern and thoughtfulness. Thankfully, our family is fine and the environment and kinship of Wake Forest kept Beth right there in Winston-Salem far from the danger here in New York. W a k e F o r e s t December 2001

20 19 In the wake of the terrorist attacks, safety of students and faculty was of utmost concern. Wake Forest monitored national and international events to ensure that students in Winston- Salem and in study-abroad programs remained secure. The University kept abreast of State Department advisories and was prepared to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of students. Residential study centers in London, Venice, and Vienna remained open during fall break so that students who chose not to travel had a safe place to stay during that time. Shortly after the tragic events, comforting messages began to arrive from the study-abroad residences. The situation in Venice remains calm. Our staff there has received encouraging information from officials at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, indicating that American students and academic officials are not considered a likely target of terrorism, said Peter Kairoff, associate professor of music and director of Casa Artom in Venice. Of the more than eighty American college-level programs in Italy, none has elected to suspend courses or send students home. The situation is being monitored closely, and any changes will be noted here as soon as they occur. Jim Barefield, professor of history and faculty director of London s Worrell House, reported that all students there were vigilant but not panic-stricken. All had returned safely from their fall break travels, as had students studying at Flow House in Vienna. All our students have returned safely from their fall recess and none reported any problems possibly related to the terror attacks. Europe has lived with the threat of terrorist attack for a longer time and is quite prepared, wrote Guenter Haika, manager of Flow House. The University s Crisis Management Team initiated a number of activities. Campus Ministry and the Counseling Center offered counseling sessions in Benson University Center, and the University implemented a 24-hour information hotline. The Department of Human Resources developed a list of faculty and staff traveling abroad and made contacts to confirm their safety. Students and faculty abroad were required to register with local embassies, and a member of the Wake Forest Police Department was sent abroad to evaluate security at the overseas residences. Campus security was heightened, and a notice regarding suspicious mail was distributed. The Office of Alumni Activities held a phonathon to contact about 3,150 alumni, parents, and friends who live or work in the greater New York area. During the week of September 17, Wake Forest students, faculty, and staff called these Wake Foresters to offer thoughts and prayers, to see if they were safe, and to ask if there was anything Wake Forest could do to help. Students, faculty, and staff raised more than $10,000 during a campuswide fund drive to benefit charities supporting victims of the terrorist attack. The Volunteer Service Corps organized the project, which drew more than 1,000 student participants. We were very impressed at the number of people campuswide who chose to participate, said Sarah Mastalir, a junior from Denver, Colorado. The fact that we raised so much money is wonderful because the people who have been impacted by this horrible tragedy deserve our support. Campus organizations, classes, and student groups representing residence halls held separate fund-raisers for the project, as well as a blood drive. Residents of Huffman Residence Hall held a potluck dinner and members of several choral groups held a benefit concert. A special edition of What s the University s electronic newsletter, asked for information regarding the safety of Wake Foresters in the New York and Washington, D.C., areas. Responses came from Wake Foresters throughout the world. Check the main alumni web page (www.wfu.edu/alumni ) from time to time for updates. W a k e F o r e s t December 2001
