Volunteer Spotlight – Floyd Kirk
Floyd Kirk was sworn in as a CASA advocate last fall, and although he has been a child advocate for just a few short months, he has made an enormous impact on the families he works with.
The foster parents of Floyd’s CASA children rave about how helpful he is — whether he is scheduling appointments, rocking the babies, or playing games with the older children on his case, they know that Floyd will be there week after week to assist in any way that he can.
Floyd is a retired educator who served as a teacher, coach, principal, AND superintendent! When he is not busy spending time with his 8 grandchildren and his 5 CASA kiddos, Floyd can be found serving his community in Glenpool through Church volunteerism, mentoring and tutoring elementary students, and serving on the Foundation board.
He also enjoys watching OSU sports, Thunder basketball, and Pro Baseball games. Floyd lives by a philosophy to “treat all children like they are your own child or grandchild” – and this is something that he consistently demonstrates on his CASA case.
If you see this advocate around town, please help us thank him for being such a dedicated volunteer…but be warned — he has an identical twin!
“Tulsa CASA provides a staff and volunteers that CARE about kids—they represent them at court and assist the foster parents; just being a ‘voice’ is huge for kids that need a CASA worker. Step up and volunteer wherever YOUR passion lies. Volunteers are needed everywhere.” – Floyd Kirk
A Note from his Advocate Manager
Floyd is a newer CASA who has jumped into his first case like a pro. He goes above and beyond on his case to make sure that his children’s best interests are heard by all involved.
He always has a huge smile on his face when he talks about his children, and it’s clear to anyone that he absolutely cares about them.
When I hear other professionals and foster parents brag about him and his hard work, I’m reminded that he’s a special CASA and I’m proud to be his supervisor. – Courtney Davis
