History of McEbright CLC

McEbright CLC is named in honor of Dr. Thomas McEbright (1824-94), who came to Akron in 1864 and soon became one of the area's prominent surgeons. For many years, Dr. McEbright served as a faithful and interested member of the Akron Board of Education.  The original school building was constructed in 1920.  The dedication for the new CLC building took place on August 30, 2011. Classes started in new building on September 1, 2011.
