BEAVERCREEK — The Beavercreek Republican Women’s Club will host Sheriff Gene Fisher as featured speaker at their meeting Monday, April 17.
Sheriff Fisher will be speaking about his position in relationship to the community.
Fischer is a lifetime Greene County resident born in Xenia and is a graduate of the Fairborn City Schools, as well as earning degrees from Clark State University, Capital University and a master’s degree from Tiffin University. Fisher also graduated from the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command and the National Sheriff’s Institute.
Sheriff Fischer’s law enforcement career began with the Fairborn Police Division as a volunteer officer and in 1983, an offer to work full time by the City of Xenia brought Fisher to Xenia as an officer for the Xenia Police Division. In 2003 then Sergeant Fisher was selected by the Greene County Republican Central Committee to be Sheriff of Greene County and to serve Sheriff Erwin’s unexpired term. He continues to serve as Sheriff, having won four elections since his appointment.
Over the years, Fischer has been active with many organizations including the Fraternal Order of Police and the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association. He held the position of president, the first from Greene County, in 2015. As a local resident, he has received numerous community awards, but his induction into the Fairborn Schools Hall of Honor stands out as one of his favorites.
Gene and his wife, Gail, are the parents of one daughter, Brittany, who recently graduated from the University of Cincinnati and currently has a job out of state.
The meeting is open to the public and will be held 7 p.m. Monday, April 17at the Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene in the Fireside Room, 1850 N. Fairfield Road. Light refreshments will be served.
