Distinguished Alumnus:
Richard Mohl '97
BS, Community Health

Richard Mohl was a health teacher in Bethel High School for eight years. At the time of his passing, he was actively involved in the design and implementation of state-wide health education curriculum.

In addition to his extraordinary commitment in the classroom, he was a middle school drama coach, Project Adventure Ropes course participant, middle school production choreographer, mentor and tutor. He loved working with his students in the classroom and on their extracurricular activities, and was always there for them to lend support, a helping hand, a listening ear, or an understanding heart.

Mohl received his undergraduate degree in health education in 1997 and his Master in Education degree in 2004, both from WestConn. He thoroughly enjoyed attending Broadway, off-Broadway and local community theatre productions. He was an avid dancer, winning many trophies and awards for his ballroom dancing. He acted in community theatre, appearing in productions such as Richter Park and the New Milford Playhouse, among others. He held a variety of other interests, as well, including racquetball, rollerblading, movies, working in the garden, and spending time in New York City.

More than anything, Mohl loved spending time with his family and friends. He doted on his godson, Zachary, and was always there for his parents, his sister Sally Ann and his brother Billy. He was a staunch, loyal friend whose many friendships and relationships crossed into so many different walks of life. Somehow, he always seemed to have time for everyone.

Mohl followed his heart in living his life. He was not afraid to face adversity and taught that to his family, friends and students. He believed himself and stood up for others. He laughed out loud, cried without shame, sang from deep within his soul, and when he heard the music – which he always did – he danced. He was a unique, inspirational spirit – one that will live on long after his earthly presence has ceased.
