Allison Rose Widderich was an exceptional student, and an amazing athlete, but more importantly, she was a sister, a daughter, and a friend. During her junior year of high school as a family, we started on the search for her next step in life. She fell in love with Wake Forest University. She was on a path to become a doctor, and their school motto spoke to her. It express exactly how she wished to live her life, and was part of why she picked it as her next place. As we think about and remember beautiful Allison please let the Motto of Wake Forest University help you understand the person that she was, and the person that she hoped to become.
From the Wake Forest University Website:
It’s not about you.
It’s about us, and the greater meaning of what it means to be human. Our motto, Pro Humanitate (For Humanity), is a calling to use our knowledge, talents and compassion to better the lives of others. It can mean donating time and resources to our communities or simply a lifelong commitment to pursuing our best self. No matter your personal interpretation, it is an opportunity to leave the world better than we found it.
