The Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf has a new CEO. Steven Farmer was the director of student life at the Tennessee School for the Deaf. He'll take over in July for Donald Rhoten who is retiring. Board of Trustees Chair Melissa Scheffler said:
We’re thrilled that Dr. Farmer has accepted our offer to become our new CEO. The decision was the result of an intensive 8-month search process during which our Board interviewed numerous candidates, introduced them to students, parents and alumni, hosted site visits and evaluated what each candidate could bring to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community at WPSD. Ultimately, we found that Dr. Farmer would best position our school for the future due to his vast management and leadership experience and his steadfast commitment to deaf education and communication throughout his career.
