Meet the Board

Abdihafid Mohamed

Abdihafid Mohamed is a junior at Edison High School who divides his time between various student groups, such as Citywide, athletic teams, an internship and a part-time job. He believes juggling all these different responsibilities have helped him learn how to communicate well with his peers and adults by connecting, listening and reflecting on their thoughts and views.
“Change can be started by one, but requires the involvement of everyone to be finished. I believe with the position of student representative, I can and will listen to the wants of MPS. I will act as a vessel and amplify those wants, and with the help of each and every staff member and student, I will create change in the community and learning environment,” Mohamed said.


The Student Representatives provide an important perspective and give voice to those at the heart of the district’s work: MPS students. The Board of Education has appointed a student representative since 2015, and in begininng in 2022 a second student representative would be selected with the goal of expanding student view and opinion. 
Mohamed, along with the other 2023 student representative, Halimah Abdullah, will take turns being the primary speaker at Board meetings but will still be responsible for keeping up on what's happening by reviewing materials and watching meeting videos when not in attendance. Additionally, the two will meet regularly together with board staff to prepare for meetings and coordinate other duties.
