Member: Christopher Heather
Chris returns to the Northwest Board of Education after a four year break, having served three prior terms, being first elected in 2001. He is a graduate of Colerain H.S., Class of 1974, and attended Monfort Heights Elementary, and remembers when the driveway to Sam’s Club was a farm, and when he and his classmates would pet horses during recess!
Chris is a strong advocate of career technical education, as there are so many good paying opportunities today for plumbers, carpenters, and other trades people. Chris is the only current Board member who resides in Green Township.
Chris has his Bachelor’s degree from U.C., and a Doctorate in Nursing from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He is the owner/medical director of The River City Mood Disorder Clinic in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. He served as a Captain in a USAF-Reserve Aeromedical Evacuation Unit.
He has worked the message board at Colerain High School football games for many years, coached and umpired for the Northwest Board of Recreation, and is active with Amvets Post 1988 in Monfort Heights. He is a licensed private pilot and Civil War historian. Most proudly, he has only missed three home UC football games in the last 40 years! He has a nephew and two nieces who graduated from Colerain High School in the early 2000’s (Phil, Stephanie, and Dianna Heather).
