Four Edina Public Schools volunteers were recognized for their leadership and contributions at the annual Edina Community Foundation Connecting with Kids leadership breakfast on March 13.

The four EPS honorees included a teacher, coach, student and parent:

  • Michael Weinkauf, Cornelia Elementary Phy Ed Teacher, School Ambassador
  • Jaime Gaard Chapman, EHS Girls Basketball and Girls Tennis Coach/Mentor
  • Matthew Hovelsrud, Student Leader

The Connecting with Kids program was created to help foster a healthy community and healthy children, establishing ways for the community to participate actively in helping positively impact the youth of Edina.
