A Remarkable Reunion

Lou Greer ’55 expresses his thoughts about the 2013 Reunion and his brother, Phil, who took the occasion to step down from his duties as Chairman of the Board of Trustees: “Dee and I thoroughly enjoyed the reunion, both because my brother (Phil Greer ’53) was remarkable in his reminiscing about his 20+ years on the board, and having the opportunity to spend a few hours with Jay (Morsman), Terry Fuller, John Glasheen, Mike Grant, and Mike Mayor at the clambake. Brother Phil addressed his dealing with the co-education decision, the lean years when Deerfield struggled, about plans for the future, and sadly, but forthrightly, with the recent misconduct issue. I was extremely proud of him, and enjoyed visiting with his classmates of the class of 1953 who I looked up to when we were freshmen and sophomores.”

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.
