Here is an excerpt from his website: " Ken is a native of Marietta, Georgia, and holds degrees from Georgia Tech and Georgia State. He has been
blessed to have many interests and the time to pursue them. Ken has been recognized as the U. S. Rotarian
who contributed the most to the eradication of polio during the period 1992 to 1995. He has served on the
City of Marietta's Board of Education and rewrote Georgia's "No pass; no play" statute. He served as chair of
his county's art museum during its finest hours.
As an athlete, he held the SEC freshman record for the javelin throw, was a founder of The Atlanta Track
Club and was national chairman and national champion in masters track & field.
Ken has written a book, "Messages in Handlebars", about the youngest French resistance fighter to receive
the Croix de Guerre, Jean-Jacques Auduc, which Claire has translated into French with many copies being
sold. Ken has presented his book to many clubs and organizations. The British Ambassador to France is an
endorser of this book. Ken is now writing a book of historical fiction about an American reporter in Paris
during and in the years following World War I." Pictured below is Ken Kirk with his wife, Claire.
