About McWhorter

The name Ferd McWhorter is deep rooted in the history of Mesquite. In 1943, Ferd Arthur McWhorter married his wife Eula. Together, the two expanded the family grocery business along Broad Street to include hardware, farm supplies, furniture, and appliances. Ferd continued the family’s long-standing tradition of making important community contributions through his commitment to education by serving for 11 years on the school board.

Ferd then inspired his own children and their spouses to become involved in the community, to the extent that Ferd’s son-in-law, Frank Greenhaw, became a school board member and eventually president of the school board. Mesquite remembers the McWhorter family today through their business as well as in the name of our wonderful school, a street, and city park that are named in their honor. The original Ferd McWhorter Elementary School was built in 1959 and was later expanded in 1976. Because the neighborhood continued to grow, the current Ferd McWhorter Elementary School building was constructed in 2003 to meet the expanding needs of the community.

Today, McWhorter Elementary School proudly celebrates school wide traditions including Literacy Night, Math Carnival, PTA performances, and the Health Fair to name a few. We look forward to providing your child with the best educational experience possible. McWhorter Elementary, Going the Distance for Success!
