Kim Clark started her position as bookkeeper for the Kansas Sampler Foundation in January, 2012.
She also serves as bookkeeper for Clark Construction Service, Inc. and is Finance Assistant for Strataca. She previously held accounting positions for the Historic Fox Theatre, Clark & Richardson Construction in Hutchinson and jobs in Colorado.
Kim is currently going to Hutchinson Community Junior College to get an accounting degree. She also keeps busy cheering for her daughter, Morgan, at Nickerson High School volleyball games and guiding her with the college selection process. To complete her schedule Kim takes care of two dogs, one Pionus Parrot, several dozen chickens, and keeps KSF staff and family stocked with brown eggs.
Kim and husband Mark have three children. Kim’s step-daughter is in the Air Force, step-son is a student at Hutchinson Community College and daughter Morgan will be graduating from Nickerson High School in December of 2014.
When asked what Kim likes about working at KSF she said, "I love reading about all the places to visit in Kansas (especially food places!) and having a front row seat on the workings of KSF and how they work with communities to make things happen. It's a close knit network and one that I've never seen or experienced in another state. Kansas is lucky to have them in their corner and I’m happy to be part of the team.”
NOTE: Kim and her daughter, Morgan, created this beautiful quilt from Explorer Club t-shirts to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Kansas Sampler Festival in 2014. They presented it to Marci as a surprise at the opening ceremonies and it later hung at the entrance to the Kansas Explorers Club tent during the festival. It now proudly hangs in the lobby at the Kansas Sampler Center.
