Bill Walker ’67-Recent Relocation to Atlanta

Just relocated from Dallas Texas to Atlanta Georgia with my family. My wife, Piper, was recruited by the Weather Channel so we are all very excited about her new job opportunity and are looking forward to getting to know the Atlanta/Marietta area which actually reminds me a lot of the hills and trees found in Austin Texas. My 10 and 12 year old daughters view the move as a great new and unexpected adventure. I left/retired from my job in the commercial real estate business and will have to update you all later on what new avenues and adventures lie ahead for me. Change has been the story of my life since I left Deerfield and in many ways has kept me young enough to hopefully now keep up with my daughters’ exploits as they head into the dreaded teen years. Also having lived for many years in the Caribbean managing a large scuba diving operation before moving to Texas, I plan to venture underwater in the Georgia Aquarium which is the largest aquarium in the world (10 million gallons) and offers private scuba dives with the only four captive whale sharks in existence that I am aware of. Would love some day to show my daughters around Deerfield especially in the Fall. Great memories need to be revisited. If you live in the Atlanta area would love to meet for coffee/lunch and get better acquainted with the area.

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.
