History

The original Innes school building was constructed in 1959 and is named in honor of Walter J. Innes (1909-1944), whose life was characterized by his desire to serve his community and his country. Mr. Innes was an honor student and graduated from Kenmore High School in 1926. In 1932-33, he taught physical education in Akron Public Schools and in 1934, he returned to Kenmore High School to teach history. In 1942, he joined the Army during World War II and was killed in action in France in 1944. The dedication for new building was held on August 19, 2009; classes started in new building on August 26, 2009.
