In a November press release, longtime Skyward president Bill Scheyer announced his retirement from the organization that aims to create and implement a strategic vision for Northern Kentucky.
Scheyer is a 40-plus-year veteran of service to NKY and has been a member of Skyward’s leadership since 2009, when the organization was known as Vision 2015. Vision 2015 rebranded early last year, following consensus from participating organizations that culminated in the creation of a four-point myNKY regional plan to facilitate job growth, education enrichment, health and wellness and community vibrancy.
Candace McGraw, CEO of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and chair of the Skyward Board of Directors noted at a recent sendoff ceremony, “We’re grateful to have had Bill lead us through the significant shift from Vision 2015 to Skyward and through the myNKY strategic planning process. Collective visioning is a strong community asset, due in large part to Bill’s vision, leadership and commitment to improving Northern Kentucky.”
Among his goals for retirement, Scheyer noted a desire to spend time with family, but said, “I plan to continue to stay involved and support the important issues I have cared about for so many year.”
