About US

Hanby Elementary is named after John L. Hanby, who was born on May 9, 1859 near Abbington, Virginia. He lived in Virginia until 1879 when he relocated to Texas. He married Mary Florence Grubb in 1880, and together they raised eleven children during their marriage. 

 Mr. Hanby was a true pioneer of the Mesquite community in its early days. He was a member of the Mesquite School Board of Trustees when the first brick building was built in a cotton patch, which is now the campus of Mesquite High School. All of the Hanby children and grandchildren attended Mesquite schools every year since that time until the last graduated in 1976. Mr. Hanby was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Mesquite, a deacon and a member of the J.C. Rugel Bible Class. He died in April 1929 at the age of 70, and Mrs. Hanby died in February 1947 at the age of 84; both are buried in the Mesquite Cemetery.

Hanby Elementary School was named for Mr. Hanby as one of the last and highest tributes to a man who humbly did all he could to serve his God and his fellow man. 
Hanby Elementary is currently under construction, and its final renovations will be revealed in the fall of 2018.
