Members of the campus community honored service milestones of more than 250 Wake Forest staff members who were celebrating approximately 2,800 combined years of service. These individuals were recognized at the 16th annual Staff Rewards & Recognition on Tuesday, October 11 at Bridger Field House. Later in the day, a campus-wide reception was open to all faculty and staff in the Green Room of Reynolda Hall.
Staff members celebrating 30 or more years of service included:
- 30 years: Cathy Chinlund (Advancement), Sherman Hart (Reynolda House), Gale Newport (Benson University Center), Beth Tedford (Z. Smith Reynolds Library)
- 35 years: Janet Cromer (School of Law), Cindy Davis (Biology), Mike Ford (Campus Life), Dallas Nifong (Facilities & Campus Services)
- 40 years: Michael Bottoms (University Police), Carrnell Covington (Facilities & Campus Services), Ann Knox (Parking & Transportation)
Betsy Chapman, Director of Parent Giving, and Patty Kennedy, Administrative Assistant in the Department of Health and Exercise Science, were also recognized as Employees of the Year. They were nominated by faculty and staff for their contributions in the areas of innovation, integrity, accountability, inclusion, and Pro Humanitate.
Chapman was honored for mentoring students and helping parents feel part of the Wake Forest experience. The Daily Deac blog she authors was cited throughout her award nomination as a highly effective way to connect parents with the campus community. As the nomination reads, “Betsy is a valuable asset to Wake Forest, and her professionalism and genuine love for the university and its students should be commended!”
Kennedy was recognized for embracing new ideas and serving as a positive role model for new staff members. The award nomination states, “Patty is always thinking of creative ways to deal with problems, with the goal of making positive changes for everyone. She is well aware of the need to serve both the department and the community.” Kennedy has demonstrated this community service through her work with the United Way and Arts Council.

This is a guest post from the School of Law:
Wake Forest Law Professor Mark Hall, the director of the law school’s Health Law and Policy Program, has been appointed as the only Nonresident Senior Fellow in the Center for Health Policy at the Brookings Institution, part of the Washington, D.C.-based think tank’s Economic Studies research program.
“At great law schools, faculty work to solve some of society’s most vexing problems. The Brookings Institution has recognized Mark Hall as a major contributor in his fields of expertise,” Professor Hall’s appointment letter states.
The Brookings Institution is the No. 1 think tank in the U.S in the annual think tank index published by Foreign Policy and No. 1 in the world in the Global Go To Think Tank.
Of the 200 most prominent think tanks in the U.S., the Brookings Institution’s research is the most widely cited by the media, Hall says.
One of Washington’s oldest think tanks, Brookings conducts research and education in the social sciences, primarily in economics, metropolitan policy, governance, foreign policy, and global economy and development, according to its website. Its stated mission is to “provide innovative and practical recommendations that advance three broad goals: strengthen American democracy; foster the economic and social welfare, security and opportunity of all Americans; and secure a more open, safe, prosperous, and cooperative international system.”
Brookings has five research programs at its Washington, D.C., campus (Economic Studies, Foreign Policy, Governance Studies, Global Economy and Development and Metropolitan Policy)as well as three international centers based in Doha, Qatar (Brookings Doha Center), Beijing, China (Brookings-Tsinghua Center for Public Policy) and New Delhi, India (Brookings India).
