King Abdullah II of Jordan, Deerfield '80

Meet King Abdullah II ibn al-Hussein of Jordan, a Deerfield graduate '80. He ascended to the throne in 1999 upon the death of his father and has made unparalleled strides to helping his fellow Jordanians. He aims to make Jordan an equal opportunity country through the means of educations. In 2010, he was named as the 4th most influential Muslim in the world - this is his website.

Here, he reflects on his time at Deerfield Academy:

I imagine many graduates, myself included, feel the same way about their prep school experience.
