Alive and Kicking

I’m happy to report that I’ve survived the year since our 40th reunion by patronizing the American health care system. If you want the gory details, email me and I’ll fill you in. In the middle of it Ann and I decamped to an apartment while we completed a major (and successful) rehab of our house and finally added that most important of southern necessities, a screened porch. After 30 years of designing spaces for everyone else it was great fun to “pull down and put up” for our own use and enjoyment. Both sons are married and working in higher education: John as Assistant Dean of Students at Hampden-Sydney College and Kerr as Associate Director of Admissions at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. Kerr is working on his doctorate in Education and John is developing his skills as a dad, with great success. Ann is teetering on the edge of retirement. I’m not sure what I am doing but I’m having a great time doing it.

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. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
