May 28, 2004 was a day of memories for many of the former family, friends, and co-workers of Jim Focht. Stories were shared of the man who served the people of the Central Union School District as teacher, principal, superintendent, and coach from 1951-1984. During his tenure at Central, Focht guided the school from a one-school district to one that included four schools, two on NASL and one in Stratford.
The James Focht Presentation Center is planned to provide adults with the power to change children's lives in a positive way, a reflection of the power of one man to help build a community one child, one family at a time. James Focht - educator, leader, and power broker.
