Kim Pope

Kim Pope

Kim Pope took over the role of the Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Columbia Basin, located in Moses Lake, 5 ½ years ago, after serving on the club’s Board of Directors for the two years prior. Looking back, the path toward a career in public service was evident. A long tenure with Child Protective Services and then a decade at the local hospital set the stage for supporting under-served children and families. The Boys & Girls Club was the perfect fit to continue that advocacy.

Kim has lived in the Moses Lake area for over 40 years. She and her husband of 32 years raised three sons in the small community and now enjoy 4 grandchildren, with a 5th to be born within the next month. She is definitely a boy mom, so she attended many basketball, baseball, and football games over the years. Even though no family members play football now, that doesn’t stop her from cheering on her favorite teams, especially WSU.

After living in Moses Lake for a long time, Kim has watched the community grow. New industries are coming to town to take advantage of inexpensive power and abundant open land around the airport or the farmland. Building relationships with those businesses has been an important part of her current role.

If Kim isn’t at the Boys & Girls Club or a club function, she participates in Rotary Club events, serves on civic workgroups, and attends other non-profit community events. Her belief is that there is no competition among nonprofits; the organizations should work together to support each other. In a small community, this seems to be even more important.
