History of Voris CLC
Voris CLC is named in honor of General Alvin Coe Voris (1827-1904), who served as a lawyer and legislator. In September 1861, he entered the army as a lieutenant colonel of the 67th Regiment during the Civil War and became its commanding officer the following March. In 1865, he was promoted to major general for distinguished service in the field. After the war, General Voris resumed the practice of law. He was later elected to the Constitutional Assembly and served as judge for Summit, Medina and Lorain counties. The original school building was constructed in 1930. The new Voris Community Learning Center was opened to students on January 10, 2007.
