Inspiring confident, creative, and open-minded learners
On July 13th, 2020, the Canton City school board unanimously approved renaming Allen Elementary as Stephanie Rushin Patrick Elementary School.
Patrick served in several roles in the district over a 49-year span and continues to serve as a substitute principal.
In 1980, Patrick became the principal of Lathrop, then Allen Elementary School, and served in that position until 2004. She then served as principal of Hartford until she retired in 2008.
Patrick, a 1965 McKinley High School graduate, earned her degree in elementary education from Central State University and a master’s degree in counseling from Kent State University.
The district will hold a renaming ceremony and celebration this year as soon as large gatherings are permitted.
