Episcopal Finance

Congratulations to Geoff Bennett ’83!

Deerfield Associates is very pleased to share the following announcement made this week by Charley Stillwell, Head of School, Episcopal High School, located in Alexandria, Virginia. “It is a pleasure to let everyone know that our search process to find our next Chief Financial Officer has been successfully completed. It is a tall order to find a wonderful individual ready to step into Boota deButt’s big shoes, but I am excited to announce that Geoffrey Bennett, the current CFO at Ransom Everglades School in Miami, has agreed to join our community during this coming summer. Geoff is especially excited to join our 100% residential boarding community having been a student at Deerfield Academy himself and a parent of four boarding school attendees.” Doug Cooney, principal of the Deerfield Associates, added, “It was a sincere pleasure working with Charley and the Episcopal High School community for the first time and on such an important search. EHS is our 158th client in the education sector. Everyone in ABOPS knows and has great respect for Boota. I have personally known Geoff for a decade and waited for the right opportunity to encourage Geoff to explore and ultimately match up with this high-profile position, which matches up nicely with his many talents and excellent work experiences. We wish Geoff, and his family, all the best in joining the Episcopal High School community”. – John Knight ’83

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?
