Longtime West Fargo principal Barnum resigning

WEST FARGO – Jerry Barnum, the longtime principal of Harwood Elementary and Horace Elementary schools, will be resigning from his post effective June 14.

Barnum, who joined the West Fargo School District in 1977, tendered his resignation in a letter received by the School Board Monday.

Barnum said his years with the district have given him “a most wonderful journey.”

“Without equivocation I know that I will mostly miss the beautiful little people that have kept me young at heart,” Barnum wrote. “Only those who have the good fortune to work with children every day can understand the joy and wonder of childhood, the art and magic of learning, and the satisfaction of being part of a team that helps children get over (or under, or around, or through) life’s hurdles.”
