Back in the Pocumtuck Valley

After 30 years of working at other educational institutions, mostly in the alumni/ae relations and fundraising arena, I have come home! I started at Deerfield on November 7, as the Academy’s chief advancement officer. I am thrilled to be back here, working alongside John Austin and his leadership team, as well as a super talented group of individuals in the Advancement Office, to help the school achieve some ambitious goals. And, I am finally a boarder! I am living in an apartment in Hitchcock (the ground floor is now the bookstore), at least until a more suitable house becomes available. My family will remain in NH until this summer, and then the big move will happen. It’s surreal (in a good way!) to walk out my door each morning onto this campus. The place is as stunning as ever! I look forward to welcoming you all back for the 35th in June!

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?
