Richard Hehr for School Trustee


Education has been my life’s calling. I have spent 41 years in public education: and thirty of those were with the Calgary Public School System.  I have been involved with classrooms from elementary through senior high, serving as both a teacher and an administrator. I have had extensive involvement with the Alberta Teachers’ Association and served four terms as President of Calgary Public Teachers.

My commitment to public education is also a family affair. My wife Judy has had a distinguished 30-year career with the Calgary Public school system and is now retiring as the School Trustee for wards 8 and 9.

Our two children Kent and Kristie are proud graduates of Sir Winston Churchill High School. 

We have three grandchildren presently attending Calgary Public Schools.  Jackson and Parker are at Early Grey School and Marshall is entering the late French Immersion program at Elboya. 


Public service is part of the Hehr family DNA.  My commitment to the Calgary Public School system and the 125,000 students it serves is unwavering. 

I look forward to serving this system once again, this time in the capacity of trustee for wards 8 and 9.
