Jerry Hanson remembers his first day as principal of Roosevelt Elementary in Detroit Lakes.

"I was so nervous," said Hanson, who came from the principal position in Perham's elementary school.


That was 10 years ago, and now Hanson is once again packing up his office for another move - this time to Fargo.

"I seem to get a little stir crazy after about eight years, so this is pretty good that I made it to 10," laughs Hanson.
