"Don't dwell on how the Dent school ended; remember how it lived--because it really did live."

That's how Dan Nodsle, Dent resident and former Perham-Dent School Board member, bid farewell to a special school where both of his boys attended.


"Love" was that special ingredient that Dent possessed, said Nodsle, to a packed gymnasium at the farewell gathering hosted May 27. The Dent elementary school, founded in 1905, will close after this school year ends.
