35th Reunion

Well guys, now it is my turn to join the banter. I, too, echo most everyone else’s grateful sentiments to Tucker, Jack and Wayne. That weekend was spectacular!

Although we had to leave the reunion early (our two older boys were participating in a documentary competition) , I had the unique pleasure of introducing my youngest son, Davis, to Deerfield. Since he is 13, I got to see my past through the eyes of the present and the future. Needless to say, Davis was instantly smitten with Deerfield and now is single-mindedly focused on applying. But his glimpse of Deerfield is one that recognizes the amazing consortium of human excellence that is our shared heritage. Having missed many, many previous reunions, and admittedly not knowing many of you as well as I would like to, it is both humbling and exhilarating to be among you in our class, and as alumni of Deerfield.

As we were leaving Deerfield early on Saturday morning to head down to Washington, D.C., I took Davis up to the rock. He said to me, “Dad, it is so beautiful…amazing…I don’t know what else to say!”


Best to all of you. Looking forward to staying in touch.

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 regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement.
