GASPARRO PROTÉGÉ STEVEN KILPATRICK PLANS TRIBUTES TO FIRST RESPONDERS

"Sculptor Steven F. Kilpatrick of Woodbury [New Jersey]
launched a campaign last year to put a bronze monument in
every town honoring all firefighters, police, emergency and
military personnel.

"'Some of these people put their lives on the line every
single day for other people. They have become some of the
most unappreciated people in our society. It is my goal to
help change that,' said Kilpatrick, 48.

"In spring 2005, Kilpatrick was one of three featured sculptors
picked from a two-year worldwide search to exhibit his works in
Washington, D.C., alongside works by Michelangelo."

"Kilpatrick wasn't always a sculptor. He graduated from Pennsylvania
State University in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in psychology and
business administration.

"After college, he joined the staff at the Lankenau Hospital
Psychiatric Unit in Wynnewood, Pa., and later became the director
of the Employee Assistance Program for Underwood-Memorial Hospital
in Woodbury.

"Shortly after starting work at Underwood, he began attending
Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial school in Philadelphia part time.

"There was an opening in a class conducted by world-renowned
master sculptor Frank Gasparro, Kilpatrick said.

"Gasparro, who died in 2001, was the tenth chief engraver of
the United States Mint, from 1965 to 1981.

"'I am a firm believer in divine intervention or providence.
I am sure that it was meant to be,' said Kilpatrick of his
studies under Gasparro."
