Class of 79

The attached picture, taken on 6 Jan 14, is me being sworn in by the Borough Attorney as the newest councilman for the Borough of Bay Head New Jersey. In addition to being the Assistant Engineer and Historian of the volunteer fire company, Secretary of the local Republican Club, and member of the Borough Planning Board, I decided to take on this new role to ensure that my retired life wouldn’t get too boring. Since retiring from the Army after 28 years as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2011, I returned to Bay Head and began work on renovating the family home converting it from a summer house to a year-round dwelling. Superstorm Sandy hit the house in 2012 (the picture below shows the garage with no walls) so much of this past year has been recovering from that. Looking forward to reunion as I have not been back since the 5th. My oldest daughter, Christina, is currently applying to PhD programs to further her goal of treating Soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Allison will be graduating next year from Skidmore College.

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 Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events. 

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?
