Former McKinney ISD superintendent Dr. David Anthony will have a middle school named after him in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.

Middle School No. 18 will be named Dr. David Anthony Middle School and is scheduled to open in August 2014. The new school was designed by Bay Architects and will be located on district-owned property adjacent to Rennell Elementary. He was superintendent for McKinney ISD from 1999 to 2004.

Dr. Anthony retired from CFISD in 2011 after seven years with the district. Overall, he served as a superintendent for 24 years, including stops in the McKinney, Texas City, Mount Pleasant and High Island ISDs. Before becoming a superintendent, Dr. Anthony served as a principal for nine years and a teacher for four years, both in Louisiana.

In order to qualify as as a namesake, an individual must have retired in CFISD. Cypress and Fairbanks are suburban towns of Houston.
