Akua Kennedy

My name is Akua Kennedy. I’ve been Dean of Students in the district for 7 years, the last 5 years I worked at Sheridan Middle School where I was also the Athletic Director and Basketball Coach. I'm from South Minneapolis but I graduated from North Community High School, class of '92. I went to college at Mississippi Valley State University and finished at North Hennepin Community College.

I’m great at building relationships, and getting students to look to the future. A lot of times students don’t have someone they can talk to; I will be that ear to listen to any issues, and also be that voice of reason as well as maintaining safety and security to our school. I’m looking forward to working with the staff, students and parents of the Justice Page Middle School Community and am committed to having a great school year.
