When you're married to an engineer you tend to plan things in an orderly
In our case, however, there's more to it than a gravitation toward
structure. Our Samuel Wait Society membership and affiliated estate
commitment benefiting Wake Forest College and the School of Divinity stem
from deep ties to Mother, So Dear.
As the daughter and niece of Wake Forest graduates, I decided there was no
other college on the planet for me long before I enrolled. English classes
with Dr. Edwin G. Wilson ('43) cemented that notion.
In 1995, my husband, Bob, and I established the Nathan D. Dail Scholarship
in honor of my father, Nathan Dail ('32). The fund's beneficiaries would
include students in Divinity, which was still four years away from its
first classes. I would go on to serve on the School's inaugural Board of
Visitors. In time, we decided to add student internships and faculty
scholarship to our Divinity philanthropy.
I am pleased that the Divinity School is honoring its religious heritage by
training and educating people of various ages and is sending them out into
the community. The graduates I've met have broad knowledge and are caring
about the needs of communities.
We are active in Hayes Barton Baptist Church in Raleigh, and we want to see
Wake Forest continue educating and inspiring young people to serve their
fellow man. By doing it through a planned gift, we can be sure our
involvement will continue.
