New AV Club?

John Knight reports of his classmates:  “You may remember that Ben Patton helps veterans work through their PTSD by telling their stories through film. You may also remember that Spence Brown helps celebrities (and others) get their stories out via radio and podcast.

Ben explains the photo: “Spencer and I reconnected in New York after three decades of not being in touch, when we discovered some important things in common. We both share a love of history and desire to support our veterans. This spring, Spencer generously offered to feature my org, the Patton Veterans Project and some of the vets we work with on a podcast taped for his new digital audio platform, Cadence 13. We hope to roll it out on ITunes shortly – and if enough ‘83ers can help spread the word, maybe it will be the first of many.

Great to be reconnected with Spencer, do some good and create some positive memories together.”

Can’t ask for more than that! See you at the reunion!”

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?
