Dr. Chris Berger

Dr. Berger was born in Wichita Kansas but considers himself a lifetime Missouri resident. He is the brother of five siblings and was raised by his aunt and uncle on small farm in Gainesville. His aunt owned and operated a variety store on the square of Gainesville the entire time of his upbringing. "Many of my core values were developed while being raised on our small farm and in the store, both of which I had a hand in running". Of his five siblings he was one of two, to complete high school and the only one to receive a college degree. He spent five years teaching middle school and coaching varsity boy's basketball in Gainesville. After serving 11 years as superintendent Dr. Berger became a Tiger and is finishing his fourth year as Assistant Superintendent of Business Operations, for Waynesville RVI. "I am very excited to continue to serve on the Chamber Board. I believe in the vision that is laid out and hope I can have a positive impact on moving us toward our goals". Dr. Berger enjoys being on the river and doing anything outdoors with his family, wife Amanda and their three boys; Christopher 20, Gunnar 16, Ryder 15 and daughter Jordan 2.
