Two members of the Wake Forest University community, Gail Bretan and Justin Catanoso, were among a group of 15 Triad residents recognized this week as 2016’s Citizens of the Triad.
Annually, Triad City Beat, a news organization in the area, recognizes people in the Winston-Salem/Greensboro/High Point area who “make culture and commerce, build relationships and play, and generally create a singular thread in this region we call the Triad.”
Bretan is recognized as director of Jewish Life at Wake Forest and as an active participant in several interfaith groups in Winston-Salem. She is a staff member in the Office of the Chaplain. Catanoso is recognized as a faculty member and director of the journalism program at Wake Forest, while maintaining an active career as a journalist (including often-traveling foreign correspondent). Just recently, he travelled for the UN Climate Summits in Paris and Lima.
