Danny Toole was in the Vanguard program for gifted and talented students at Herod Elementary School in Houston and was also in the SPIRAL program in Spring Branch ISD. As a young boy, Danny showed keen mechanical and logical abilities, which he demonstrated with Lego Robotics, K’Nex, and other building sets. He built and programmed his own Lego Robotics robots, and designed and built his first computer from parts he bought at Fry’s at age 13. He attended Cornerstone Academy and Memorial High.
Daniel Gregory Toole, 20, passed away unexpectedly in a tragic accident Sunday, October 21, 2007. Danny is survived by his parents, Shaun and Nan Toole; as well as his brother, Eric Toole.
The Danny Toole Memorial Turing Scholarship is commemorated with a plaque in the Computer Science department. Each year, a Turing Scholar student recipient’s name will be added to the plaque
