Little Flower hires new principal

By Staff | Aug 9, 2013

Little Flower Catholic School will have a new principal this fall.

Jorgen Knutson will replace Charlie Epperson, who served as principal for one year.

Knutson comes to Little Flower after working in Dunseith as a junior high administrator, according to Fr. Tom Graner.

Graner, a Little Flower School Board member and pastor at the church, said he first met Knutson while in Rolette.

“I knew Jorgen when I was in Rolette,” Graner said. “He was the principal at Rolette and I was at Sacred Heart Parish.”

Graner said Knutson’s experience will be a great asset for the school.

“He’ll be starting this coming week,” Graner said. “He’s been down already for a couple of meetings. He’s a life-long educator with a lot of experience.”

Graner said Knutson’s wife, Faith, is a librarian and AV technician with the Belcourt schools, and the couple has three adult daughters.

“They were members of the Sacred Heart Parish when I was there,” Graner said.
