FARGO – The Oak Grove Lutheran School Board of Regents announced last week that it had accepted the resignation of President Michael Slette, to be effective with the end of the first semester on January 15, 2022.

In his resignation letter, President Slette noted “the time is right for me to step back from my role as President to focus on family and whatever else the Lord may call me to do.”  President Slette expressed his gratitude “for the incredible opportunity God laid before me in the summer of 2011 to join a most amazing group of people to extend the rich heritage of Oak Grove.”
