NEW ULM - The District 88 Board of Education bid farewell to Superintendent Harold Remme on Thursday night during his last school board meeting before retirement.
Remme said his tenure had been a good 16 years in many ways. He wished the Board the best future possible. Board members gave Remme a round of applause.
After the meeting, Remme said it was very different and distinct feeling to no longer be the superintendent. He plans to take retirement slowly at first, focusing on visiting with family and enjoying camping.
