My initial idea was to write a book about all the famous people who hail from Plano, Texas, but that idea quickly became overwhelming.
Instead I am going to write a blog, which seems much more manageable.
When I first started doing research I knew that this city had its fair share of famous faces, but I had no idea Plano was such a hotbed of talent! Musicians, actors and actresses, athletes, politicians, and scholars – Plano is a veritable “who’s who” of great Texans and great Americans. I was inspired to start this project a few months ago when I took a service call for a broken dehumidifier at a ritzy suburban address. The home belonged to none other than music legend Boz Skaggs. He wasn’t born in Plano, but has maintained a residence here for decades. He was not at home when I arrived to do his HVAC repair, but his housekeepers let me in to do the repairs. After that I started looking up just how many famous people have called Plano home over the years. My first blog will be titled OIympians of Plano, and cover several dozen local athletes who have competed in the most revered competition in world history. It will take a few more weeks just to get all the names in order, because there really are that many great athletes from Plano. One topic I will not be covering are the Great HVAC Techs of Plano, because I don’t want to give any free marketing for my rival businesses. The HVAC market in Plano is very competitive.
