Shupe, Terry

Shupe, Terry

Through his professional designation as a provincial court judge, Terry has given to society. His other titles prove his extraordinary commitment to the community. Founding chairman of the Crisis Centre, trustee for Big Brothers, founding and honorary life chairman for Western Canada Theatre Company, and an instrumental member in the construction of the Sagebrush Theatre, he is an asset to many in the Kamloops area. It is abundantly clear that Judge Shupe has given our province so much more than twenty-five years as a trial judge. His past accolades reflect a passion for the arts and his fellow community members. His latest endeavors involve traveling to countries in strife, and mentoring judges. The Independent Judicial Commission cites Judge Shupe’s contributions as ‘exemplary’. In his spare time, Judge Shupe has taken up the hobby of woodworking. Truly representative of his nature, the wooden toys and furniture he creates are then donated to Christmas Amalgamated. (From website)
