Visions and Initiative

IMG_7975Back in 1969 when the Alumni Association began, under the guidance of Alumni Secretary Robert Barrymore Crow, an Executive Committee was formed to serve as the governing body of the association and to perform a vital, positive, and meaningful role on behalf of Deerfield Academy and its alumni.

Today, thanks to our uniquely dedicated alumni and the tireless efforts of the folks in the Advancement Office, a growing number of initiatives are bearing fruit. Each year, the committee presents the Heritage Award, the Ashley Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award in recognition of outstanding achievement or service by alumni or members of the Deerfield staff.

Other current initiatives include: Pathways, where current seniors hear alumni present the “pathway” that they took to their career and offer anecdotes of how Deerfield impacted that path; Deerfield Days of Service, with alumni in regions around the country participating in designated volunteer public service activities such as environmental cleanup, food bank service, and the like; From Albany Road, a periodic e-newsletter which communicates news of events, activities, and other matters of interest to the alumni body; and the ongoing development of regional clubs both nationally and internationally. We welcome your suggestions for engaging our alumni with each other and with the school.
