Governor’s Office Honors Rockville High School

On June 2nd, the Governor’s Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing honored Rockville High School for winning the National Deaf and Hard of Hearing Academic Bowl Championship.

Established in 1996 by Gallaudet University, this competition promotes academic competition among schools and programs of Deaf and hard of hearing high school students through regional and national competitions.

Rockville High School won the national competition in April 2016. The students are Ruthie Ferster, Jaclyn Gleicher, Jonathan Summers, and Bryan Yun. They were coached by Jenna Hubble and Chester Kuschmider.

At the event, each student received an individual citation from the Governor’s office. Delegate Eric Luedtke from Montgomery County joined the event and honored the students with a legislative citation as well. Other state officials and representatives of the Montgomery County Public Schools joined the event to congratulate the team.
