A note from George

Hi All at DA!

Been doing a good bit of film and TV this past year, including Boardwalk Empire on HBO, and Made in Jersey on CBS. Had a small featured role in Thanks for Sharing, a film starring the singer Pink, much to my niece’s delight. Most excited about playing Harry Houdini in a play in New York this coming February titled, Listen, Houdini.

Rachel and Claire are thriving now that we have a small place in Pennsylvania to escape the city when we need to. They are the ones who make the sacrifice so that I can continue this para-profession called “acting.”

The play I’ve written titled Misfortune was a semi-finalist for The 2013 Princess Grace Playwriting Award. I’m hoping to get it produced this year.

I hope all is well in Pocumtuck Valley.

Very best,

George Demas

Class of 1987

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. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus.
