Recent Visits to Atlanta and San Antonio

Always fun to travel for the Academy, especially when I get to visit classmates!

After a fun DA reception at White Oak Kitchen in Atlanta (owned by Alan LeBlanc ’80) a random group (including Clay Holloway ’66, John Knight ’83, Chris Murphy ’85, David Van Riper ’85, Andrew Hough ’89) marched down the street to Max Lager’s (also owned by Alan) and drank a single malt scotch toast to Jay and Mimi Morsman on the news of their retirement. Murph does “logistics” in Atlanta area, Van Riper writes software for Suzuki and Andy is an M&A lawyer. Solid citizens all and lots of bad ’80s memories….

The bleary eyes I brought to breakfast the next day were immediately cleared by the broad grin of Hardie Jackson ’83. So fun to see him and catch up. He’s in constant contact with Charlie Gagne and both are planning on making the 30th reunion…Hardie is busy as COO of a promising young company distributing custom athletic protection for all at Evoshield.

The day before Atlanta I caught up with Brian Steward ’83, our award winning San Antonio lawyer. (Good to know there is help for us all over the map if we need it!) He’s got reunion on the radar too. Also got a big bear-hug from Corby Snow ’81

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?
