History of Glover CLC

The new Glover Community Learning Center was opened on December 17, 2008.  The original school building was constructed in 1918. The school is named in honor of Nathan L. Glover (1842-1923), the first supervisor of music education in Akron Public Schools. In September 1872, Glover was hired as a vocal music teacher for the Akron schools. For years, he was the only person in the music department, going to each school and conducting a music class in each room about every two weeks. He organized annual music festivals and formed glee clubs and choruses in each high school. Later, he became supervisor of music, coordinating the work of a staff of itinerant music teachers. Glover retired as head of the music department for Akron Public Schools in 1921 after 49 years of service with the school system. He was succeeded by his daughter, Nellie Glover.
