RIP, Tom Munroe

Many students and teachers who passed through Highland Park ISD are familiar with Tom Munroe, who served the district for 35 years, mostly as an administrator.

Munroe died this week at age 75, and The Dallas Morning News has an obituary detailing his career and accomplishments. A memorial service has been set for Wednesday at Highland Park Presbyterian Church.

His time in HPISD included stints as an algebra teacher at Highland Park High School, the principal at Hyer Elementary School and HPHS, and various other jobs before retiring in 1995. Have any memories you’d like to share? Please do so in the comments.
