Glenn Gennaro ’66 Featured in Clarion Herald Column
Glenn Gennaro of the Class of 1966, a man whose work left no small mark on the lives of many in the area, was the subject of a featured article in the Clarion Herald. Gennaro entered into eternal rest on June 30, 2017. He was the associate superintendent of the Archdiocese of New Orleans and a life-long educator. He served the Jesuit High School community as director of counseling and admissions for five of his six years there.
A true man for others, Gennaro worked for eight different schools in south Louisiana during his long career in school administration.
Peter Finney of the Clarion Herald writes, “Gennaro’s resume reads as though it belongs to a Catholic free agent, someone who would plant seeds and then move on, but always cheerfully pulling with him another boxcar containing the students and teachers he had touched along the way.”
Of the eight schools, Gennaro served as principal at four of them — St. Christopher, Pope John Paul II High School in Slidell (founding principal), St. Clement of Rome, and Jefferson Community School.
“If you don’t start at the ground level, you can’t go up,” Gennaro often said.
