Class of 1983 News

Last August, Eileen and I took a long weekend up to DA to participate in D2R2, a cycling fundraiser for land preservation in Franklin County. It was my first visit since ’91 and Eileen’s first look at the school. We arrived Friday morning and set up camp in a field just south of the village. We then took a drive up to the old ski facilities where I spent much time toiling as the first and only four-year letterman on Varsity Trail Crew. That afternoon, we spent some time talking with with John Knight ’83 in front of the administration building. During our conversation, who should stroll up but Mr. Harcourt, who tried to teach me chemistry thirty years prior. In any event, the ride was as beautiful as it was challenging. Hoping to be able to ride up from home this June for my 30th reunion.

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.
