Chad Hembree
I live in Berea, KY with my lovely wife (Letha) and son (Mason) where I am an IT Manager & Security Officer, a Radio Show Host and an Entrepreneur. I am currently a Commissioner for the City of Berea serving on the Human Rights Commission. I am also acting Chair for the Kentucky Hospice Network Informational Technology Peer Group. I attend the Berea United Methodist Church where I was the former Youth Minister. I am a Master Mason of Lodge 617 Berea, I am Past President of the Berea Lions Club as well as Past Chair for our Lions District Zone, I am active with The Berea Chamber of Commerce, I work with Miss Kentucky/Miss America system, and I attend and support many other organizations in my community. I attended Madison Southern High School and Berea College where I studied Vocal Performance with an emphasis on Broadway. I started working for my family's computer business in Lexington, KY (MCA) and later opened my own computer company called CH Business Systems, Inc. After selling CH to a friend and fellow entrepreneur, I got out of the hardware business and opened DataStar, Inc Computer Services. DataStar was closed in 2009 when I took a full time position with one of my most active clients. I've been on the radio since 1995 as the host of Tech talk with Chad Hembree ( where my guests and I discuss the lastest and greatest in today's technology with a little fun along the way. My wife Letha is the Music/Chorus teacher at Madison Southern High School. Through Letha I keep strong ties to the Music and Theatre community where I still perform regularly.
