History 

Hyre CLC is named in honor of Robert G. Hyre (1894-1961), who began his career with Akron Public Schools in 1929 when the Ellet District became part of Akron. From 1934-1950, he served as principal of the old Ellet High School and was given the task of organizing the new Ellet High School. He continued as principal of this new school until his resignation in 1956.  The original Hyre Middle School building was constructed in 1960 and additions were made in 1963 and 1971.  The state-of-the-art Hyre CLC building opened its doors to students on September 1, 2011 and was dedicated on September 29.
