Did You Know?

  • A big shout-out to our kids; they took all of the photos used throughout our website. Nice!
  • In September 2012 CNN's Money Magazine ranked McKinney 2nd best place to live in the United States (we'd rank it 1st Place!)
  • McKinney North High School was born in the year 2000
  • McKinney is the county seat of Collin County, Texas
  • The first known reference to the word Bulldog was made in 1631 or 1632 in a letter by a man named Preswick Eaton where he writes: "procuer mee two good Bulldogs, and let them be sent by ye first shipp" (we're thinking a blue one and an orange one)
  • McKinney North High School enrollment is approaching 2000 students - including Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors
  • The city of McKinney was born in 1849 with a 130 acre donation from a local landowner
  • Our city and our county are named after Mr. Collin McKinney - one of the 5 people who drafted the Texas Declaration of Independence and the oldest person to sign it
  • Mr. McKinney is credited with suggesting that counties in North Texas be 30 miles square - thus allowing a rider to travel to the county seat, conduct business, and ride back home in a day
  • The original purpose of the Bulldog was to subdue bulls by latching onto the bull's nose, or muzzle, and submitting the larger animal - today we (mostly) discourage this practice during academic & athletic competition
