’55er Potpourri

In Greenville, SC, Lou and Dee Greer have moved “across town to the Cascades-Verdae retirement community. We’ve built a so-called cottage there. We’re looking forward to a leisurely life of leisure.” Lou will continue to coach JV lacrosse at Greenville High School this spring. He relates that his “great nephew is Deerfield’s lacrosse goalie, and looks like he’ll be on Team USA when they compete in the world championship next summer.”

Whitney (Whit) Evans ’54, PG’55, has penned his post-Deerfield activities for us in the 1954 column. His and Jeanette’s years of charitable civic endeavors are admirable.
Charlie and Sharon Thebaud continue to be happily situated in Cummaquid, MA., a village on the bicep of Cape Cod. Summers on the Cape are delightful vacation getaways. John Boyden also lived there in retirement.
It was impressive to read in the final report of the Imagine Deerfield campaign that Jerry Rood and Tim Day each contributed $100,000 or more to the effort. In Margarita’s words, “Imagine Deerfield has elevated our beloved school, revitalized our program, and sharpened our focus on academic excellence, while sustaining our foundational emphasis on character and our ethos of service.” Many thanks to Jerry and Tim on behalf of the students and our alma mater.

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.
