Senior Spotlight: Edgar Kinanga

Meet Edgar Kinanga! Edgar’s Hopkins Path started at North Junior High when he was in 8th grade. He came to Hopkins from Kenya to receive medical care for a spinal cord tumor and cancer that left him wheelchair bound. In the following years, Edgar defied the odds to become a multiple sport athlete and student advocate. At North Junior High, he campaigned to successfully get the school water fountains up to code so all students could easily access them. His humble and persevering attitude is one that can and should inspire us all. Next year, Edgar plans to attend University of Minnesota Twin Cities, where he will be studying computer science.

In this video, Edgar is interviewed by Angela Wilcox, his 9th grade AVID instructor.
