History of Rimer CLC

Rimer CLC is named in honor of William F. Rimer (1870-1947), who moved to the village of Kenmore in 1919 and became principal of Kenmore High School in 1927. The school was originally a one-room school called Allenside, located at the corner of Foust (now Wilbeth) and Manchester roads. It was replaced with a new building in 1928 and was annexed as part of Akron Public Schools in 1929. The groundbreaking for the new CLC building was on June 4, 2007. Classes started in the new building on August 26, 2009.
