Ron Gruwell, assistant superintendent of secondary education in the Grand Forks School District, announced his retirement Monday night.

Gruwell, who will turn 64 on Thursday, has worked in education for 42 years - 27 of those with the Grand Forks district.

"I think it was a bit of a surprise on their part," Gruwell said of the Grand Forks School Board members upon hearing that he is retiring.
