Colorado Eight

I did it!  I found the newest classmate in the octet known as the Colorado Eight!  Will Piersol in the red shirt, joined by nearest classmate Taylor Watts and me.  Sunny and 70 as usual at lunchtime…
Will had some great stories about his time in Singapore, Taiwan and Japan but the family decided the time was right to live back in the US. So great to have him nearby…
Will recalled how in 1978-79 he was touring schools as part of the admission process and visited DA during the winter term.  When he arrived on campus in the fall of 1979 to start 9th grade he asked, where are the girls?  Turns out his parents never mentioned that DA was all-male, and he assumed that since he saw girls on campus (Emma Willard exchange!) during his tour it was coed. Way to stick it out Will!!!

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.
