I’ve attended nine schools in my life. K-3, the school was named after a person, but I haven’t been able to find any record, even in local history books, of who that person was. 4-5, my school was named after a fellow who was a notable figure locally during his life, but whose only real impact on history was getting a few things named after him. 6th grade was just called the School of Science (spoiler alert: There wasn’t any more focus on science than at any other school). 7-8, I think was named after a civil rights leader (double checking: Yes, he was). 9th, 10-12, and undergrad were all named after various saints. The two colleges I went to after my bachelor’s were named after a state and a city, respectively.
I think that out of all of them, St. Benedict was probably the most historically-notable.
