History of Leggett CLC
Leggett CLC is named in honor of Mortimer D. Leggett (1821-96), who served as Akron's first superintendent of schools, from 1847 to 1849. During his short tenure, he was responsible for the formal organization of the Akron school system.  In addition to his role as superintendent, he also served as principal of the grammar school. The original building was constructed in 1889.  Additions were completed in 1914 and 1921. The new Leggett CLC building opened to students on September 1, 2010 and was dedicated September 23.
