Every once in a while, it’s time to celebrate something in the family.
Meet Ms. Celine Olcott, pictured below, Dad’s oldest grandchild. She received a Bachelor of Science degree summa cum laude in Accounting from Wake Forest University (minor in Statistics) this past Monday.
She was also honored as the recipient of the Spirit of Wayne Calloway Award.
This recognition honors
the individual who exemplifies the best that the School has to offer the business world and society. The recipient is an individual whose actions and attitude convey high personal and professional integrity; whose effort level is indicative of a strong sense of personal responsibility; whose goals reflect a commitment to personal and professional growth; and whose achievements demonstrate uncommon dedication and talent — an individual who is admired by, and inspiring to, others.

Education has been one of the core values Bernard Olcott installed in all of us in the Olcott family. Celine embodies them through and through.
Celine returns to Wake Forest this Fall for one more year to complete her master’s degree. Afterwards, she will join PWC at their New York headquarters.
Well done, Celine! You have amply earned the pride of your Grandfather!
Three more grandchildren to go!
The Bernard Olcott Story resumes next week after this episode of blatant, egregious kvelling.¹
¹ – “Kvell”: Derived from Yiddish, means to “feel happy and proud.”
