Mr. Faught was my English teacher during the 1970-71, school year at Van Buren. He was an exceptional teacher and a very good man. I am grateful I sat under his instruction. I daily use what he taught us. Very sorry for your loss. His life and teaching will continue through all of us. James Faught made a difference. John Sagely
