During the late 19th century, America was in its era of Manifest Destiny and the nation was looking to expand to great lengths. We acknowledge President William McKinley’s role in the annexation of Hawaii, where he signed the bill in favor of the annexation. With his actions, America emerged as a powerful political power in the Pacific. As a result of this, more recent news has come up calling for the name change of President William McKinley High school to Honolulu High School. In argument, that piece of history stands there for us to learn and create our own inquiries about how we should act today. For more than 150 years, McKinley High School has stood strong and held itself up on two main pillars: Pride and Tradition. A name change would cause great disturbances to the traditions and practices students look forward to every year, and slight the alumni who have graduated as “McKinley Tigers”. We would like to preserve the history, pride, and tradition of McKinley High School and its alumni by signing this petition to OPPOSE the name change of our school, from McKinley High School to Honolulu High School.
