Kirk spoke with 6th graders in Ms. Sinnis’, Ms. Martinez’s, and Ms. Nolen’s class to discuss the importance of having goals and working hard in school. He told the class that working hard in school gave him many opportunities in basketball. He credits his mother, Pat Kirk, for staying on top of him and his grades while he was a student in Los Alamos.
Students asked Kirk which sport besides basketball is his favorite. “I love to golf,” he said.
Kirk autographed backpacks, binders and water cups for the students and stayed on after his talk to play basketball with them and impress them with his slam dunking skills.
