SciWorks Radio kicked off Sunday, Jan. 12 with a segment on the geological history of the Piedmont. Host and producer Shawn Fitzmaurice, SciWorks’ Planetarium technician, took listeners back in time to a Piedmont covered with mountains and volcanoes during the four-minute inaugural broadcast.
SciWorks Radio will air every Sunday at 8:34 a.m. on 88.5 WFDD. Future broadcasts will tap into the knowledge of local experts.
“Our vision and mission for SciWorks is to further scientific understanding and appreciation among the adults and children of The Triad and Northwest North Carolina,” said Paul Kortenaar, executive director of SciWorks. “Through this exciting collaboration with WFDD, we are able to extend our mission of bringing the science happening right here to the entire community beyond the walls of the science center.”

Looking to give back? Several opportunities are available at Wake Forest:
The Angel Tree
The Angel Tree is in Benson University Center on the second floor outside the food court. Each year, the Volunteer Service Corps student organization partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters and The Potter’s House to provide holiday gifts for children who would otherwise go without.
The program depends on members of the university community who adopt the angels in order to provide holiday cheer for these nearly 150 children. The Angel Tree gifts were originally due Thursday, Dec. 5, but the deadline has been extended to Dec. 11. Please contact Meg Fallon at firstname.lastname@example.org or VSC adviser Shelley Sizemore at email@example.com for more information.
Gifts for Kids
Wake Forest Athletics and WGHP (FOX8) are partnering for the fourth consecutive year to bring the Gifts for Kids initiative to the Joel Coliseum for the Deacons’ basketball game against Richmond on Saturday, Dec. 7. Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the game. Fans will receive a free ticket to the game with the donation of a new toy with a retail value of $10 or greater.
All donations will be collected by The Salvation Army and will be given to children in the Winston-Salem area. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.
For the fifth year in a row, WFDD (88.5), the NPR affiliate station licensed to Wake Forest, is partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C. in a campaign to support both organizations. This three-way partnership results in necessary funds for WFDD and support for the Food Bank’s Backpack Program, combatting childhood hunger.
This program sends food-insecure children home from school each Friday with a backpack full of nutritious food to sustain them over the weekend.
During the WFDD Backpack Campaign, corporate sponsor Ralph Lauren contributes a backpack of food to the Food Bank for each pledge received by WFDD, up to a total of 800 backpacks. WFDD will be on the air Dec. 11-12 for this campaign. More information is available at the WFDD website, wfdd.org, where real-time tracking of the number of backpacks raised is also available.

WFDD general manager Tom Dollenmayer recently presented a plaque to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in recognition of the first place journalism award the station received for the piece it produced as part of Wake Forest’s Faces of Courage series.
WFDD and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion worked in collaboration to record, produce, and broadcast the stories of the pioneers of Wake Forest’s integration in 1962. One piece, a commentary from David Matthews (’62), was recognized during the Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI) national award competition and received first place in the documentary category.
Matthews’s commentary can be heard at WFDD’s website: http://wfdd.org/post/breaking-family-tradition. In it, Matthews describes how history classes about British colonialism and Africa shattered his long-held prejudices about African Americans.
“We were thrilled when Matt Williams from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion approached us about working with him on the Faces of Courage project,” Dollenmayer said. ” To have that collaboration result in a first place national journalism award is an honor for both departments, and for Wake Forest University.”
