Forrow family gives $100,000 gift to WFU Divinity School

Eleanor Reid Forrow and her husband, Brian D. Forrow, have given $100,000 to the Wake Forest University Divinity School. The Greenwich, Conn. Couple gave the gift in honor of Eleanor Forrow’s late parents, Albert Clayton Reid and Eleanor Jones Reid.

The gift will be used to encourage and promote the practice of pastoral care. The Reids devoted much of their lives to direct service to others.

“A.C. Reid and Eleanor Jones Reid were committed to assisting friends, strangers and others because of their belief that the Christian word must be implemented directly, and not remain a doctrine isolated from people’s lives,” said L. Wade Stokes, director of development for the Divinity School. “This gift is a fitting tribute to their Christian service to the community.”

The Divinity School at Wake Forest began its second year this fall. The new class has 28 full-time students. Fourteen students are men and 14 are women. There were 24 people in the founding class – five men and 19 women.
