Since the Sawyer school reopened, Borud said that there has been an increase in students and people in the community.

“The school is a great addition to the community. I know there’s kids from Minot and Velva coming into Sawyer school. There’s been an increase in kids this year. I wanna say about 40 or more. But, everything’s been going great. They have a great staff of teachers and kids. And I can’t wait for my little one to go to school here,” said Borud.
