A letter from President Nathan Hatch to the community
Dear Wake Forest Faculty, Staff and Students,
Commencement season is a time of celebration and new beginnings for those about to graduate. It is also a time to say thank you and bid farewell to many of our friends, colleagues and mentors who have made Wake Forest University their home.
Please join me in congratulating and commemorating a marvelous class of Reynolda Campus faculty and staff retiring from Wake Forest this year. We are profoundly grateful for the countless contributions from this remarkable group of individuals, who together have more than 600 years of service to the University:

- Congratulations to Ron Noftle, professor of chemistry, whose proposal entitled “Low Band-Gap Oligomers and Metal Organic Framework Ligands Based on Thiophene” has been funded by the Dreyfus Foundation.
Decades of working with undergraduates in his chemistry research has earned chemistry professor Ron Noftle national recognition. Noftle was one of 12 educators recently named a 2010 Senior Scientist Mentor by The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation.
“Many (senior) faculty no longer teach courses nor take on graduate students. Their wealth of experience and knowledge, however, makes them a unique and valuable educational resource for undergraduates,” said Mark Cardillo, executive director of the Dreyfus foundation. “This program provides for the development of a relationship between these senior scientists and the students as they engage in perhaps their first research experience to generate new knowledge.” Read more
