School for the Deaf names new leader

Rochester Business Journal
August 20, 2014

The Rochester School for the Deaf has a new superintendent and CEO after the retirement of longtime leader Harold Mowl.

Mowl served as superintendent and CEO of the school for the last 20 years, and this week the school’s board announced that Antony McLetchie has been selected as its next leader. McLetchie served as secondary school principal of the Ernest C. Drury School for the Deaf in Milton, Ontario.

Mowl has agreed to stay on in his position until McLetchie and his family have relocated from Canada, RSD officials said.
“As hard as it is to see Dr. Mowl retire, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have Antony McLetchie as our new superintendent,” said Michael Doughty, RSD board president. “Antony has a strong background in deaf education. He is an experienced teacher and administrator and is highly regarded in the field of deaf education. The board is excited to engage with him in building a dynamic strategic plan for RSD.”

Doughty added that McLetchie stood out during a search process that included meetings with stakeholders and a town hall-style forum.
“It was obvious that Antony has extensive educational leadership, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and he is a strong leader,” Doughty said. “We have every confidence that he will help us reach our future goals as a school community.”
