Susan B. Anthony Middle School was built in 1996, when the jr. high split to build two middle schools. Influential Kansans was the focus of the name. Although Susan B. Anthony was not native to Kansas, she influenced and stood for change that impacted our state. She developed a sense of justice and broke the mold when she fought for women’s rights. She ignored opposition and abuse, she also campaigned for the abolition of slavery. Education was important to her and in 1900 she persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women. Since the other middle school was named  for Dwight D. Eisenhower a male influence, it was also agreed upon that Susan B. Anthony would be a great female influence to name the other middle school. She stood her ground and made a difference and influenced the future. We hope this is what our students will do
