Curt Tryggestad, Pine City’s new superintendent of schools, said it feels like a natural step to take on the role as leader of School District 578.

“It’s great,” Tryggestad said. “This felt like coming home. It has been the easiest transition of any job that I’ve ever had because of the community and the school and the people that are here.

Tryggestad was a principal in Pine City from 1997-2003 before taking the job as superintendent of the Esko School District where he stayed for three years. He moved on to Little Falls where he spent six years, then Eden Prairie for five years, then the Perpich Center for Arts Education for two years.
