McKinley High School

I have some fun trivia for you that someone at work told me - who was McKinley High School in Canton, Ohio, named after? I'll post the answer in a few days, if no one can come up with it.

It was named for United States President William McKinley and for his sister, Anna McKinley, who taught many years in the Canton Public Schools. (At least that is what it says at the Wikipedia talk page for a proposed addition to the article on the school!)

Absolutely! Here is the link from Canton high itself:

I just think it is a neat little factoid because you expect the school to be named after President McKinley (who lived in Canton for a good portion of his life) and find out that it is also named after his sister.
