Senior Spotlight: Kol Jansa
May 29, 2019
For Kol Jansa, senior, his final year at HHS was very memorable. Jansa has participated in DECA, Royals for Christ and the Ultimate Frisbee team known as HURT.
Jansa spent many months preparing to compete in the DECA districts competition, moved on to the state competition and went on to advance to the DECA national competition which took place at the end of April in Orlando, Fla. This was one of his greatest achievements in his time at HHS.
“DECA nationals was a blast because it was a great networking opportunity to be able to talk with people around my age from all over the country,” said Jansa.
However, all the Minn. participants stayed in the same hotel for the event.
“I liked being able to meet the best from Minn. and always being with the other kids from Minn.” said Jansa. “The two of us from Hopkins were paired up with two other kids and one of them was one of the Minn. state officers.”
Jansa did not place in the top three for his competition but used this trip as a learning experience.
“It was fun to compete at the highest level possible,” said Jansa
