Marie Nitke/FOCUS The fellowship hall at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church was packed full of well-wishers on Sunday afternoon. They were there to thank and congratulate longtime school principal and teacher, Bonnie Stohs. Stohs is retiring after 15 years at St. Paul’s School.

When Bonnie Stohs was asked to be principal of St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Perham, she was told the stint would be brief, about a month or two, at most.

That was in 1998. Fifteen years later, after a much longer than expected career at the school, she laughs and shakes her head at how things turned out so differently – and she’s clearly happy that they did.
