On the last day of school, Waubun students gathered around their principal Helen Kennedy to hug her goodbye, tell her she'll be missed and wish her good luck.


As she tried to keep herself from crying, Kennedy told the students Thursday that she took a job as Bagley High School principal.

"Life isn't fair," she said, her voice shaking. "But when life isn't fair to us, we have to pick up and do something to make it better."
