(Kirk on Trencher)

Kirk began working 8 hour days as an electrician in the summer of 1994 during the construction of the Stettler Community Hall. He graduated High School from Wm. E Hay in 1997 then attended Red Deer College for a 2 year Theatre Studies Diploma majoring in Technology. After that he spent 2 years on and off working in the theatre and stage industry before he began apprenticeship with Ampko Electric Ltd. in 1999.
Wanting to continue his post-secondary education, Kirk left Stettler to go back to college and got a part-time job with a hazardous waste company. He secured a position with Canem Systems in Red Deer after coming to the realization that pouring hazardous waste is no way to make a living and completed his 1st and 2nd year of apprenticeship with Canem Systems on large projects such as, the Red Deer College Library, the Sylvan Lake Aquatic Centre, Olymel Meat Plant, Red Deer Regional Hospital (3rd Floor Expansion and new Critical Care Building), and Montana's Restaurant. Kirk married his wife Tera (who was also from Stettler) in 2002 and together they made the decision to move back to Stettler to start a family. Upon returning to Ampko Electric Ltd. Kirk completed his apprenticeship and received his Journeyman Certificate in 2005, bought Ampko Electric in 2006, achieved his Masters Qualification in 2008, and his P.E.C. designation (Professional Electrical Contractor) in 2012.
Kirk is actively involved in Kin Canada through the Kinsmen Club of Stettler. He has held all club positions at least once and is currently serving 3rd term as Treasurer. He has served as Zone D (Rocky to Stettler, Rimbey to Innsifail) Deputy Governor and will be District 4 (all of Alberta and a portion of north eastern B.C.) treasurer for the 2013/14 year. Community involvement is important to Kirk and he serves or has served on numerous boards including Bar Harbour Camp, Red Deer Buccaneers Football Club, Stettler's Centennial, and Stettler Minor Lacrosse Association.
