We are still enjoying living in London with four kids at the American School in London. We are doing a lot of adventure travel over here. I saw Dan Maynard at a Deerfield event in London and made a visit to Deerfield this fall. We will be on Martha’s Vineyard this July and August in case anyone is going to be up there.

Paul Kruk ’79 writes:

My family and I are moving back to the Boston, MA area after living for 6 years in Eastern NC. I will miss the mild winters there. Still with FedEx but taking a new World Wide Sales Manager position. My twins are about to turn 16 and start driving. I was able to live out my longtime dream last summer when I took batting practice at Fenway Park.

I caught up with Colin Cooper ‘79 and his wife, Jean Marie, at Stratton a few weeks ago where their son Eli was racing; and I’m meeting next week with Dan Pryor, Parry Gosling and Kip Howard here in NY. Looking forward to seeing them!

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.
