2019 WINNERS! Alex Zeitany (’12) and Peter Grimm (’11, MSA ’12)

Alex & Peter’s #DeacsInLove Story: “Our love story is intertwined with Wake! It started with us sharing BB&T field together as student athletes which led to our first fur baby, Deacon, a proposal atop Wait Chapel, saying “I do” on the quad, and now welcoming our first child at the place where it all started! Our lives wouldn’t be the same without Mother so Dear! #DeacsinLove”
