The Tom Glenn High School

I’m periodically reminded by notifications from the internet that there is a school by my name, Tom Glenn High School. It’s in Leander, Texas. It opened in 2016. It’s named after the previous superintendent of the Leander School District, Tom Glenn.

My full name is Thomas Louis Glenn III. My father and grandfather were both named Thomas Louis Glenn. Neither of them were men I want to be like, but I’m stuck with them as predecessors with my name.

I don’t think of Tom Glenn as being a common name, but apparently it is. I regularly stumble across other men with that name, including an author. His book is P-47 Pilots: The Fighter-Bomber Boys published by the Zenith Press in 1998. And every once in a while, another Tom Glenn surfaces in the news.

So much for being unique.
