Kofi served as a dedicated member of ETA’s founding board of directors from 2019 until his death in 2023. With his passion for fitness and community, he created and chaired ETA’s Light A Spark event with contagious enthusiasm each year. He was an invaluable partner in developing and implementing our civic engagement work with teens. As the program director of John F. Kennedy High School’s Leadership Training Institute, as an Empowering the Ages board member, and throughout his teaching career, Kofi inspired students every day to achieve leadership excellence.
We continue to be inspired by Kofi’s own leadership, by his tireless dedication to empowering his students, and by his commitment to the value of connecting them with older adults in the community.
