A hometown hero paid a visit to the school where his dream started.

Nathan Schroeder just finished the Iditarod and he shared stories about the experience at the Northern Lights Community School.

Schroeder is from Warba and first fell in love with dog mushing when a substitute teacher brought some sled dogs to the school. Schroeder's dream was to complete the Iditarod and now he's ready for round two.

"It was pretty challenging," Schroeder said. "It was a long road to get there. I actually want to go up there again and do it one more time."

During his talk, Schroeder brought two of his dogs, dressed a student in his mushing gear and answered questions from community members.
