Jay & Mimi, Tim & Sandy, Tom & Merry

Our celebrated class of 1955 has been immortalized with a new Tennis Pavilion dedicated to our classmate, Jay, and Mimi Morsman. Jay was Head Coach of Boys Varsity Tennis for 29 years in which his team won two New England Championships and a National Championship. The new indoor facility will allow players to stay-tuned year round. .. Two more Marine Corps officers have been selected as recipients of Tim Day’s Marine Corps Entrepreneur program at Harvard Business School. Tim and Sandy also provide a greatly appreciated “helping hand for abused and abandoned dogs” via Lulu’s Fund which is named after their beloved pug, Lulu. .. Merry and Tom L’Esperance have returned to Carlsbad, CA, after a wonderful year long break in Kauai. We’ve noticed a dramatic increase in traffic and congestion as more snowbirds are flocking to sunny Southern California. We’re glad that we’ve earned our retirement papers and aren’t commuter worker bees anymore. .. As a reminder our Class Notes and The Scroll can be accessed at: http://deerfield.edu/alumni/class-of-1955/class-notes and http://deerfield.edu/scroll/ .. Please write us a note about your goings-on for the next issue of Deerfield Magazine.

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?
