Following in the footsteps of previous member (and former President) PB Weymouth, John Knight is pleased to announce that he has been added to the Executive Committee of the Deerfield Alumni Association for a three year term.
The EC consists of up to 26 alumni distributed across the decades who work to engage their fellow classmates with information about DA and excuses to congregate like Day of Service and Choate Day. Fun to be with other rabid DA supporters from across the years, especially Paula Griffith Edgar ’95 and Dave Hagerman ’64 and Syd Williams ’85.
We heard from Marjorie Young, Director of Inclusion, about her role in helping all students and faculty create a positive learning atmosphere for everyone. On the face of it it sounds a little contrived but as we know from the media the definitions of typical roles in society seem to be blurring. At the end of the day one thing seems clear, if a student is feeling out of place at DA, its important for them to know there is support nearby, either on the corridor or at an office. I’m pretty sure that was just as important back in our day.
