THE PLAN AND 74 M . HOMGMQMQMZ HISTORY OF COHN HIGH SCHOOL Corinne L. Cohn High School had its beginning in l928 when a wing of the present building was constructed and named to honor the memory of Mrs. Co- rinne Leiberman Cohn, a beloved former member of the Nashville City Board of Education. Mr. AI. H. Sikes, a long-time teacher in IfVest Nashville, was named principal. Immediately Cohn School became a center of community interest. Its lead- ership in Mr. Sikes, Mr. Brown, and other teachers, working in cooperation with a wide-awake Parent-Teacher Association and community leaders, brought the Cohn Junior High School, into the educational forefront of the city. The growth of the school was so rapid that it soon became overcrowded and badly in need of new facilities. The people of I'Vest Nashville liked their community school and dreamed of the day when their children might complete their high school training in their own school. In l937 a new building program began, doubling the floor space of Cohn, adding a gymnasium, a large auditorium, new shops, a new Home Economics department, and many new classrooms. The same year saw the tenth grade added to the school, with the promise of more grades being added in future years until a full high school status should be attained. The school was officially named the Corinne L. Cohn High School. The gratitude and pride of IfVest Nashville people immediately found expres- sion in increased school enthusiasm and support. The P.'T. A. enrollment soared and a new Men's Club of Cohn High School was formed. The fine loyalty, enthusiasm, and financial support of these organizations gave the school the undergirding it needed for permanent growth as a community center and as a leading educational institution. The line vision of the city school administraa tion, the unfailing love and generosity of Mr. Charles Cohn, and the hne loyalty of the business interests of Mfest Nashville were indispensable in these early years of development. By 1939 Cohn High School had a well-rounded four-year course of study, an excellent library, a Fine band and orchestra, a splendid chorus, full participation in all interscholastic athletics, a strong school newspaper, an ade- quate speech department, a Fine faculty of thirty-six teachers, and a building about to burst with enthusiastic young people. The year l939 saw the retirement of beloved Mr. -I. H. Sikes, after over fifty years of service to the children of IfVest Nashville. The school, the alumni, the P.-T. A., and the Men's Club joined hands and hearts in honoring Mr. Sikes at the largest banquet ever given in Ivest Nashville. In l940 Cohn High School had its hrst graduation. There were sixty-three members in the class. It was a good class - one that had borne responsibility and had helped set up sound precedents for tradition. By 1941 Cohn was becoming too crowded. Already the people of YV est Nash- ville were dreaming of and clamoring for a building program. The Board of Education was responsive to their needs and soon had blueprints under way for a greater Cohn High.
