2012 MAA Weekend
MAA Challenge Match Lifts Total to $16.4 Million
As Wake Forest School of Medicine alumni enjoyed camaraderie among alumni from across the generations, the 2012 Medical Alumni Association Weekend was a historic one: Fifty-eight current and former leaders of the MAA and their families raised more than $5.8 million for the school as part of the MAA Challenge Match.
The gift of $5,843,563 was announced during the MAA fall board meeting at The Mews at Graylyn Conference Center by past MAA presidents Merrill Hunter, MD '78, Joel Miller, MD '74, and Allen Van Dyke, MD '71. Combined with a gift of more than $10.5 million made one year ago by 17 alumni, the weekend's gift raised the challenge total to $16,360,992 from 75 alumni.

Class of '62 Contributes Milestone Gift
Members of the MD class of 1962 announced a gift of $404,580 in honor of their 50th reunion. Since graduating, the 1962 class members now have combined to give $10,211,092 to the school. The reunion class gift challenge, led by Caryl Guth, MD, and Robert Cooper, MD, included gifts from 26 of 41 class members.
Class of ’82 Endows Scholarship Fund
In honor of their 30th class reunion, 12 members of the MD Class of 1982 committed $72,500 to fund an endowed Class of ’82 Scholarship at the School of Medicine.
The effort was spearheaded by class members Drs. Brenda Latham-Sadler and Cecil Price of Winston-Salem, Hugh Fraser of Danville, Va., and Rick and Stephanie Reid of Lewisville. They exceeded their goal of $50,000, the minimum required to endow a scholarship, and are seeking to increase the scholarship fund to $100,000 by fall 2013.
“This is a great opportunity for us to recognize the class members who are no longer with us by presenting a student with much needed help in their honor,” Latham-Sadler said. “Ultimately we would like to follow in the very large footsteps of classes that have preceded us, like the Classes of ’58 and ’62, which have provided assistance to so many students."
Other class members participating in the initial fundraising effort were:
- Owen Davis, MD, New York, N.Y.
- William J. Lavin, MD, Kettering, Ohio
- Rachel Ann Nunn, MD, Lafayette, Colo.
- Lamar Parker, MD, Winston-Salem
- Charles Penley, MD, Nashville, Tenn.
- Don Riddle, MD, Kinston, N.C.
- Dale Williams, MD, High Point, N.C.
