Name: Paula Henry
Age: 54
City of Residence: West Fargo, North Dakota
Employment: Elementary School Principal, West Fargo

“The people.” That’s the answer you will get from recent Minnesota transplant Paula Henry when you ask her “What’s your favorite thing about North Dakota?” You’ll get the same answer when you ask her what’s surprised her the most about the state.

Henry took a job with the West Fargo School District as an elementary school principal, and moved from St. Cloud, Minnesota over two years ago to fill the position. She was quickly impressed by what she found: “I just love the friendly spirit and the wonderful countryside…and being able to see the sun rise and set each day.”

When she’s not at work the fifty-four year old Henry keeps busy biking and running, eating out on patios and taking advantage of the arts and entertainment that the state has to offer.
