Class Notes

News from John Embree ’71

January 30, 2012

Greetings everyone…..sorry to have missed the reunion last summer. That was the first one that I have missed in some time.

I don’t think I have submitted any news in many years. Since I check our class notes every time I get the Deerfield mag, I notice that our class is woeful in keeping everyone informed of each others whereabouts. So, hear goes my attempt to do so, albeit brief:

We moved from Chicago to Newtown, PA in summer of ’08 when I was tabbed to be President of Prince Sports. Unfortunately, that opportunity did not live up to my expectations, so after a rough two years, I began a consulting practice within the tennis industry in the fall of 2010. Consulting is consulting, which has its pluses and minuses. But, in this economy and at our ripe old age, it is tough to find a full time scenario. So, I will take what I can get. 

Meanwhile, we are in the college mode, anxiously waiting word on where my high school senior will end up. My prep school sophomore son takes after his father in terms of his mediocre academic performance. Might end up moving back to Chicago this summer where my family remains. 

 By the time you will be reading this, my wife and I will have returned from visiting Sam ’71 and Kelly Bronfman in Barcelona, who are speniding one year there. Ole!
