'This isn't retirement'

Email News Alerts

For 30 years now, the man in charge at Detroit Lakes Community Education has been Mark Greenig.

Starting next month, however, that will change -- when Greenig steps down as its director.


"This isn't retirement, it's just a chance to do something different," says Greenig.

Not that he hasn't loved his job.

"It was a tremendous gig -- the best job in town," he says. "There had to be something there to hold my fascination for 30 years."
