Wegleitner retires after 50 years with the Sisseton School District

by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

Committed and dedicated are two words to describe Herman Wegleitner, who will be retiring this week after spending the last 50 years as a custodian for the Sisseton School District. Born in 1937, Herman began work for a local Britton farmer at 18 and quickly decided he couldn’t make it doing that seven days a week. He joined his brother at the Iron Range in northern Minnesota doing Erie mining for three years. That operation shut down and he returned to South Dakota and found work at the Oahe Dam in the tunnel from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., and after four long months, he knew he didn’t want to do that any longer than he had to. Wegleitner found himself in Fargo where he became a union painter, and he stayed there until joining the service in 1961.For the rest of this story please buy a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now.
