SARTELL — As graduation approaches, many seniors want to leave a lasting impression.

Adam Dullinger is a senior at Sartell High School, and his name won’t be forgotten.

“I mean everyone compliments me for it, they all really enjoy it and think it’s a cool thing to add to the school,” says Dullinger.

With the help of the Art in Motion program in the Sartell School District, Dullinger not only kept his memory alive, but the memory of an historic stadium.

“The program really tries to bring some new stuff to the school, and the opportunity to get some Metrodome benches that were taken when they were tearing it down came up,” says Dullinger.

Dullinger spent three months in his Industrial-technology class, turning five individual Metrodome chairs into a bench.

He even added some school pride into the project.

“We ended up putting the shield on each side, which I think turned out pretty cool,” says Dullinger.

The bench now sits in the main lobby of Sartell High School, bringing back memories to anyone who walks through the doors.

“These are the seats we all sat in and it’s no longer there, so this is kind of the last bit of memory from those kind of events,” says Dullinger.

Dullinger is also responsible for building the podium that will be used during tomorrows graduation ceremony.

He says looking back he is glad to be a part of something that will last for years to come.

“I loved how it turned out,” says Dullinger.

Dullinger plans to attend the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities this fall.
