Andy Harcourt, a 35 year member of the faculty and our Renaissance Scientist, joined the Head of School, Margarita Curtis, at a Deerfield event in San Diego on March 3, 2014. Good news was reported by Margarita that the Endowment Fund’s market value has grown substantially along with the Academy’s total assets over the past year, and a triad of teachers spearheaded by Andy have created a course titled Global H2O/American Currents to synthesize academic disciplines in an collaborative effort to effect more resourceful “critical thinking” skills and “environmental stewardship”. Also present were David Pond, Associate Head of School, Jenny Hammond, Associate Director of Alumni Relations, Karen Nuelle, Events Manager, and Katherine McKay, Director of Gift Planning. As usual, camaraderie and nostalgic Deerfield memories abounded at the Island Prime C Level Restaurant in ‘America’s Finest City’.
