“Jonathan (Jocko) Knowles reports that his lovely wife, Pat, passed away in May of 2000 after almost 60 years of marriage. We had remained friends with another couple from Colby. He was in my class and she was a class behind. We used to take them to our Maine house and when he passed away several years ago we continued to take her to Maine. I continued to take her to Maine after Pat died – with no ulterior motive until she intimated something, or said something that made the light go on over marblehead – now we are a couple. I have been twice blessed to have the love of two beautiful women. Both families have been very supportive, which makes life a little easier. I have a son and his wife, two remaining daughters (my daughter, Callie, passed away in 2016) and their families. I greatly enjoy my eight grandchildren who are all within a two hour radius.
Gerry Carrick reports that after nearly 45 years as a real estate broker he is glad to be retired. I enjoyed the days when you interacted with clients personally – now it seems everything is via the internet – not my cup of tea. At our age it’s just nice to wake up in the morning.” – Joseph Twichell

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.
