History of Rasor
Rasor Elementary School was named to honor one of Plano's earliest and most successful settlers, John Henry Rasor. John Henry Rasor came to Plano, Texas, from Kentucky in 1880. He and his ten sons quickly began buying farms in the area and very soon, they ran a highly organized operation which included hundreds of acres of farmland, big barns, granaries, hog houses, giant silos, feed lots and blacksmith shops.
Rasor was constructed in 1991-92 at a cost of $4.1 million.
