An enthusiastic welcome for Chris Paul ('07)

Want to know what it's like to be president of the National Basketball Players Association? NBA superstar Chris Paul ('07), president since 2013, has the answer. It's like being in a "business class on steroids."

Chris offered insights into leadership and personal memories when he returned to campus this month as part of the University's Leadership Project. Nearly 2,000 students, faculty and staff were on hand to hear President Nathan Hatch conduct a Q&A session with the famous guard for the Houston Rockets. Chris has led on the court and off, most recently helping victims of Hurricane Harvey and lighting up his Twitter account frequently with positive messages. One from this summer: "Always remember, kids are watching US and learning from US. It's our responsibility to be better role models and teach them LOVE."

Wake Forest Magazine featured Chris in "The Pro Humanitate Issue" in 2013. He told us then, "Pro Humanitate means helping others ... it means giving back and paying it forward." You'll want to read what he had to say about leadership in Wait Chapel and how his work to pay it forward continues.

Best wishes,

Maria Henson
