Advisory: Family requests no cameras at Hearn memorial service


August 21, 2008

News media are asked not to bring cameras into Wait Chapel Friday when a memorial service is held for Thomas K. Hearn Jr., Wake Forest University’s retired president who died last Monday.  The family has made the request.

The memorial service will begin at 3 p.m.

The Wake Forest News Service staff will be in attendance at the service and available to assist news media.

Due to the memorial service and freshman orientation, there will be limited parking spaces available.  TV trucks may park in Parking Lot P, adjacent to the Chapel on its east side.  Members of the news media may park their cars in Parking Lot N, a u-shaped lot along the east side of Hearn Plaza.  It is advised that members of the news media be prepared to show identification.

Those attending the service from the news media are encouraged to arrive early.
