Board of Directors

Kevin Gibson

Founder, President & CEO

As a retired police officer serving his community for for 28 years, Kevin Gibson has experienced all walks of life and nationalities, rich and poor, young and old, good and bad, and through his eyes has seen the best and worst of the human condition.

As a father of 3 children, Kevin  sincerely cares for the future of young people, having witnessed the increasing challenges to their safety, health and opportunities to discover their own potential.

As a musician, Kevin Gibson has been writing, recording, and performing music since he was a teenager, and understands the ability music has to bring people together, inspiring their hearts and minds for a better world.

In 1988 Kevin pursued his dream of being a police officer becoming  a member of the Winnipeg Police Service.  From walking the beat to keeping a beat, Kevin continued to pursue his passion for music by forming and fronting a band called “UNDERCOVER” releasing a full self-titled CD in 1997. During his time with Undercover, Kevin Gibson  had the privilege of working with many great artists who share the same passion and together use the power of music to inspire a better world for young people.

In 2006, 3 fellow police officers were shot and seriously wounded in the line of duty. In support these officers and their families, Kevin  created a concert event called “Brothers In Arms” raising thousands of dollars for various charities such as the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Since that time Kevin has tirelessly pursued and proudly founded Status4 Inc, dedicated to enriching lives of young people while discovering support and hope through the gift of music and the arts.

“Be Yourself and Free Yourself”
