Hopkinton Today: Friday, May 7

417

Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a video or two to brighten your morning.

Calling her daughter “bright, funny, loving, caring,” an emotional Calvina Strothers paid tribute to Mikayla Miller and called for a “full and transparent investigation” into the teenager’s death during Thursday’s rally that drew hundreds to the Town Common.

The investigation into Mikayla Miller’s death is being handled thoroughly and could take three months or more to finalize, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan told the Hopkinton School Committee at Thursday’s meeting. “We are committed to determining how Mikayla’s very promising life came to an end,” she said.

Jonny Wolf’s soccer career at the University of New Hampshire has included numerous peaks and valleys, and the Hopkinton native is hoping for a strong finish after he recovers from an injury that has him sidelined.

This week’s edition of the Schools Notebook highlights Hopkinton High School students who won awards at last month’s Massachusetts Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Leadership Conference as well as high school and middle school teams that advanced to the VEX Robotics World Championship.

Town Meeting is scheduled for tomorrow at 9 a.m. at the Hopkinton High School football field.
