Gene Dillon Elementary gathered together for a very special dedication ceremony not only in honor of the wonderful new building but to celebrate former Bemidji Area Schools school board member Gene Dillon.

Speakers included one of Gene’s sons Mark Dillon, Gene Dillon Elementary Principal Ami Aalgaard, Vice Principal David Gooch,  current school board member Carol Jonson, former Superintendent Jim Hess and current Superintendent Tim Lutz along with a handful of current Gene Dillon Elementary students.

Also in attendance were many of Gene’s friends, family and the entire staff/student body of Gene Dillon Elementary.  Way to go Eagles!
