Why I Give
Michael Spector '93
My life at Derryfield began in eighth grade. The small class sizes and dynamic Mr. Keiner are two of my more vivid memories of my DS experience. Although I would be challenged, I always felt as though it was in incredibly supportive and collaborative ways.
I think about Derryfield almost every day! I attribute that to the well-rounded, unique educational experience that Derryfield gave me. It made me a better overall thinker and communicator. My teachers inspired me, my coaches encouraged me, and the friendships I formed remain my strongest today.
I don’t give to the Annual Fund simply out of obligation. I give because I know every contribution helps create more meaningful student experiences. Anecdotally, I did an independent senior project on the wealth management business and chose that world as a career path – one I still love to this day! That’s fairly strong proof that DS helps its students lay a very practical foundation while allowing them to explore their passions.
Please join me in making a gift to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund today.
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
