His legacy lives on
March 18, 2020
As I write this, I think of the legacy Tom Eldred left for all who knew and loved him. Tom’s life was celebrated in a beautiful service last Saturday at the Glenwood School. Though he is gone, his legacy will live on. The kids will always have the slogan “Eldred Strong” and know what it means to be a Glenwood Eagle. They’ll remember Mr. Eldred sitting on the sidelines of the track at Tom Eldred Field, coaching them even as he grew frailer, shouting words of encouragement. Thank you, Tom Eldred, for giving so much of yourself to this community. Because of you, all who knew you are forever Eldred Strong.
Many of us who weren’t able to attend Tom’s service owe a huge thank you to...
