After his long stint on the board, which manages fundraising for the school, Fred Weiner is resigning to focus on his commitments at Gallaudet University, a specialty institution for the deaf and hard of hearing, where he serves as assistant vice president of administration.

Weiner joined the MSD board in 1997 and was appointed president in 1999. His tenure leading the board lasted six or seven years, he said.

“I was honored to be part of the school’s success,” he said.

Gallaudet, where Weiner has worked for 15 years or so, is developing a large mixed-use property that he said will “change the face of campus” and occupies quite of bit of Weiner’s time.

His children graduated from the Maryland School for the Deaf and have attended Gallaudet, with one graduating Friday.

“From a personal standpoint, it made sense for me because I was going up to Frederick quite a bit,” he said.

Board President Denise Phelps lauded Weiner for his service. She said Weiner was instrumental in increasing the endowment of the school to nearly $1.2 million, through the annual golf tournament the school sponsors, and other fundraising opportunities.
