The long awaited administration building was recently completed at Stratford Elementary School. Dedicated to Frances and Deane, the Villa Administration Building is an exciting addition to the campus of the school. The legacy of the Villa’s continue to affect the school well beyond the 36 years Frances worked for the school district, and the 32 years Deane “Big Daddy Cougar” Villa served as coach, teacher, and principal for the tight-knit school and its community. Present at the October 1, 2008 ceremony were school and district personnel from both past and present including previous principal Tom Hewitt, current principal Bill Bilbo and current superintendent Ron Seaver. Visibly touched by the recognition, Mr. Villa was proud to be so honored by the district and the large crowd of well wishers present for the dedication ceremony.
