Liam Chatterton and Zach Swope, two members of Mercersburg’s Office of Admission and Financial Aid who were appointed to interim roles last summer following Quentin McDowell’s appointment as acting head of school, have had their interim titles removed.
Chatterton, who is entering his sixth year at the school, is serving as dean of enrollment management, while Swope, who has worked at Mercersburg since 2015, is now the school’s director of admission. (Each held their respective titles on an interim basis from June 2021 until this spring.)
Chatterton’s initial Mercersburg appointment in 2017 was as director of financial aid and associate director of admission; he added the title of director of institutional data and strategy in 2020. His wife, Kathleen, works as a business analyst in the school’s Business Office. Chatterton graduated from St. George’s School in Rhode Island and holds a bachelor’s degree from Babson College and a master of business administration and a master of strategic management from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
Swope came to Mercersburg from The Webb School in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, where he was associate director of admissions and a dorm head. At Mercersburg, he was previously senior associate director of admission. Swope and his wife, Shelley, live in South Cottage, where Shelley is the dorm dean. Swope graduated from Hendrix College and holds a master’s in independent-school leadership from Vanderbilt University.
