The following is a message from President Nathan Hatch:
While commencement season always brings about a sense of new beginnings and opportunities, it’s also a time to say thank you and bid farewell to many of our friends, colleagues and mentors who have called Wake Forest University home.
Please join me in congratulating and commemorating a marvelous class of Reynolda Campus faculty and staff retiring from Wake Forest this year.

Kenny Herbst (’97), an associate professor of marketing in the Schools of Business who also happens to be a former walk-on basketball player, trended worldwide on Twitter during the 2013 ACC Tournament. His energetic support of Wake Forest as it played Maryland inspired the hashtag #IntenseWakeFan.
The Old Gold & Black asked Herbst about the experience:
“Cheering with enthusiasm is not a new thing for me, and so the reaction from fans and the media around the country that night was really surprising but fun. I think the reason that this became somewhat of a story was because I was in a seat in which I could be seen and from which I could be heard. I hope that my applauding the team for their great effort makes a difference.”
