McKinney ISD will officially unveil the newly renovated McKinney High School at a special celebration called Mane Event this Sunday, Jan. 12 at 2 p.m. This is a chance to finally see the much anticipated improvements that have been promised for over a year.
For more details please read the following information provided by MISD:
It will be a truly noteworthy occasion that honors the history of MHS as it looks toward the future. A new 20-foot school history display featuring photos and artifacts will greet guests as they enter the main foyer, and during a brief ceremony in the MHS dining hall, MISD campus namesakes Jessie McGowen and Leonard Evans will be joined by a small choir of fellow Doty High School graduates to sing the Doty school song. Doty holds an important place in MISD history; it was the African-American high school that integrated with McKinney High School during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s.
U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson, State Senator Ken Paxton and State Representative Scott Sanford are scheduled to join Superintendent Dr. J.D. Kennedy, members of the Board of Trustees, Principal Dr. Logan Faris and other district representatives for the celebration.
The ceremony will be followed by an open house.
