’87 Update

On the whole the Swinerton Family had a pretty great spring. Our son Chase ’15 finished up his sophomore year at DA and our daughter Hannah was admitted into DA’s class of 2017.

Still living in south Florida. Lacrosse continues to dominate our world with my two youngest playing and my wife Gayle running our town’s league, Weston Warriors, and her travel program the Praetorians. I had a great year myself coaching my second year of Varsity Lacrosse at our local HS Cypress Bay finishing up 15-1 and earning our chapter’s US Lacrosse Coach of the Year honors, County Coach of the year honors as well as being asked to coach our regional all star team made up of all the regional All Americans. It was a blast all around.

We look forward to visiting DA this fall to check out some football and field hockey. Hope to see some classmates around campus.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
