This is a guest post from the University’s Leadership Project:
Too many students in K-12 classrooms don’t have the resources they need. Students can’t dream big when classrooms lack books, microscopes and tablets — or even paper, pencils and paste.
Now you can make a difference through Wake Forest’s #BestSchoolDay.
On March 29 faculty, staff and students can support a K-12 classroom by picking up a free $25 DonorsChoose.org gift card in one of several locations around campus and redeeming it toward a project of their choice. Participants are only able to redeem one gift card. Our goal is to have all 1,000 gift cards picked up on March 29 and redeemed on the same day. Gift cards will be available for pick up at most locations from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.:
- Outside the main entrance of the Fresh Food Company (The Pit),
- At the Spirit Walk in between Tribble Hall and Benson Center,
- At Wake Forest University Law Commons,
- In the faculty lounge in the School of Divinity (11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. only),
- In the Founders Day Living Room at the School of Business
- At the Luter Hall Block Party for First-year Students (5 p.m. – 7 p.m. only)
You can choose from among hundreds of projects nationwide, although you are encouraged to support a local teacher in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Donate to one project or split your $25 among several projects.
#BestSchoolDay at Wake Forest is being held in conjunction with the University’s Leadership Project, which is hosting Charles Best, CEO of DonorsChoose.org on Tuesday, April 5, at 6 p.m. in Broyhill Auditorium in Farrell Hall.
DonorsChoose.org provides a simple way to address educational inequity. In Forsyth County so far this academic year, 174 projects, including hands-on science labs, vocabulary enrichment tools and playground improvements for children with special needs, have been funded — supporting more than 13,500 students. In the local school system, nearly 450 teachers have raised funds for more than 1,000 projects since 2003.
Please help make Wake Forest’s #BestSchoolDay a community success by picking up and redeeming a $25 gift card on March 29.
For questions or more information on gift card distribution, contact Matt Williams at email@example.com.

Among the strategies that contributed to Farrell Hall’s Gold-level certification is its inclusion of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood paneling and regional materials. Almost 30 percent of the building materials by value were manufactured within 500 miles of the project site. More than 80 percent of on-site generated construction waste from the project was diverted from landfills. The incorporation of bicycle storage facilities also encourages alternative transportation.
One of the most notable features of the building is its open floor plan with classrooms, offices and social spaces on every floor—an intentional design aspect that encourages faculty-student interaction. Before Farrell Hall’s opening in 2013, School of Business faculty, staff, undergraduates and graduates were housed in two separate buildings on the Reynolda campus.
“Farrell Hall was designed to be an innovative space from the ground up. Our aim was to provide a remarkable home for our school, without compromising our commitment to sustainability. Our open, collaborative environment fosters business education and encourages engagement between faculty, staff and students,” said Charles Iacovou, Sisel Distinguished Dean of the School of Business. “Achieving LEED Gold certification places the School of Business in excellent company at Wake Forest.”

This is a guest post from the School of Business:
What do backpacks and running shoes have in common?
This year, it’s the Fit for Business 5K run on April 16, beginning and ending at the School of Business, Farrell Hall. The School’s Graduate Student Government Association (SGSA) designed the event to promote wellbeing and highlight a problem less than 5K away from campus — hungry schoolchildren.
Proceeds from the race will benefit Forsyth Backpack Program, a local nonprofit that feeds K-12 schoolchildren who don’t have consistent access to food on weekends or school holidays.
“I hope that the 5K rings alarms of awareness though out our community concerning the hunger issues children face daily in this area. One in two children in Forsyth County are on reduced or free lunch [at school] … and experience food insecurity,” said Williams Hawks (MA ’16). “We must ensure that we are living up to the call of our motto, Pro Humanitate. We must be there to close the gap on local hunger.”

The following School of Business faculty have been recognized recently for their achievements:
Assistant Professor of Accounting Andrea Kelton received the Best Paper Award at the 2016 Accounting Information Systems Midyear Meeting held January 22-23. The award was for a paper she co-authored with Robin Pennington at N.C. State entitled “If you tweet, they will follow: CEO tweets, social capital and investor say-on-pay judgements.”
Assistant Professor of Accounting Norma Montague received the 2016 Innovation in Auditing and Assurance Award from the American Accounting Association. Montague and her co-author Rebecca Fay of East Carolina University received the award January 15 for a case they developed entitled “Witnessing Your Own Cognitive Bias: A Compendium of Classroom Exercises.”
Providing a rundown of the “who’s who” of the tax world, the International Tax Review’s Global Tax 50 recognizes individuals and organizations that have had a significant impact on taxation. The group named Coca-Cola Fellow and Associate Professor of Accounting Ya-wen Yang for her research. The recognition mentions her research with Assistant Professor of Accounting Andrea Kelton on the relationships between gender diversity in the boardroom and c-suite, and levels of abusive tax behavior.
