Message from Coach Manning about Faculty/Staff Appreciation game

This message was emailed to faculty and staff on behalf of Coach Danny Manning by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

Dear Faculty and Staff-

As the semester comes to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a fantastic holiday season.

On Saturday, December 23, we host Tennessee from the SEC and I want to invite you and your family to attend the game. Wake Forest Athletics is offering free tickets and T-shirts to faculty and staff members and their families. The game is set for 12:30 PM at LJVM Coliseum.

Tickets will be distributed beginning at 11 AM at tables marked Faculty/Staff in the coliseum’s main lobby at the east entrance. Staff and faculty may come to the tables and show their Wake Forest ID card to request the number of tickets needed for their family. Athletics staff will distribute tickets at that time.

I hope to see you at the game.

Go Deacs!

Coach Danny Manning


Professor invites submissions for book on gratitude

Mary Dalton

Is there an experience in your life that you would like to share in a book about gratitude?  Now, here’s your chance.

Mary Dalton, professor of communication, is collecting submissions about gratitude to publish in a volume called “Sharing Gratitude: Daily Reflections,” which will be published through Library Partners Press.

On a web site for the book, Dalton explains:

“Over the last few months, while thinking about gratitude and the power of sharing positivity, I started asking people to send their best gratitude stories to me.

The instructions are that the story be an appreciation of something in daily life, a recounting of something they’ve done for someone else or something someone else has done for them, or something they’ve observed.

Of course, I’m also open to other suggestions because gratitude takes many forms. These stories can be about something big or small, known or anonymous, recent or long ago, but they must be 300 – 400 words in length.”

To participate, send a submission by email to dalton@nullwfu.edu.

Meanwhile, Dalton has published some initial submissions on the book’s web site and on her Facebook page.
