Hotlanta – Bill Walker ’67

Moved to Atlanta from Dallas last December as my wife accepted a wonderful job opportunity with the Weather Channel. It has turned into a really great year for us as my wife is also an Aggie, so some would say that we in fact followed Texas A&M to the SEC highlighted by “Johnny Football” crushing Alabama which all of Georgia greatly appreciated. My daughters Logan (13) and Chase (11) have brought their Texas charm, cowgirl boots, and good looks to Atlanta, and I know I will have my hands full shortly as they turn into Georgia “peaches.” Some day I hope to bring the family to view the beautiful grounds and hills of Deerfield. I feel so lucky to have attended Deerfield while Mr. Boyden, Mr. Sullivan, and Mr. Merriam still ran the show, and of course my favorite teacher, Mrs. Boyden, will forever be a part of many happy memories for me. Hope all is well with all of my classmates. A good friend of mine in Albany, NY, advised that he plays golf regularly with Jim Reed so I thought I would pass that along to all those who were friends of Jim.

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.
