Mr. Mark Blecha
Hello, my name is Mark Blecha and I am the Athletic Director at Franklinville Central School. I am a graduate of Pioneer High School, Canisius College where I earned my teaching certification in Physical Education, and I received my Masters Degree from St. Bonaventure University. I have been a Franklinville Panther since 2000 after teaching and coaching in Olean for 10 years. I currently teach High School Physical Education and coach the Franklinville football team. I reside in Machias with my wife Stacy and 3 sons: Bryce, Brock and Bretton. Bryce and Brock are TBA graduates and Bretton is in the elementary school.
I am excited about the opportunity to serve the district as athletic director. My goal is to carry on with our proud traditions here at Franklinville and to help build on the athletic programs here at the high school. The coaching staffs and I will work to keep your children safe and offer a sound and structured program that will bring out the best in your child, not only athletics, but in life.
