55’ers 58th Reunion

Our 58th Reunion in 2013 was marked by an outstanding milestone — Jay Morsman’s 53rd year as a faculty member at Deerfield! Jay personified our Class of 1955 with his devoted presence at Deerfield that has been exceeded only by Mr. Boyden’s 66 year tenure at the Academy. Mike Grant relates“We had a small, but stellar group there to mark Jay Morsman’s retirement at the Deerfield Reunions. Michael Mayor, Terry Fuller, Ayres Hall, Lou Greer, Moose Morton, John Spurdle, John Glasheen and myself showed up and enjoyed the day. Jay had already been recognized at several dinners and receptions earlier, and his big surprise was the awarding of the Deerfield Medal at graduation. Mimi was individually recognized at the reunion by Head of School Margarita Curtis for her long and exceptional service as Alumni Secretary, and the Alumni Association has established an annual award in their honor for an Alumnus who has contributed significantly to the Academy.”

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
