The building, designed by Hermann and Brown architects,opened in the mid-1920s as a junior high and elementary school. It was named for aviationpioneer and Dayton native Wilbur Wright, one of the famous Wright Brothers. The school’smascot of the “Pilot” further honors the Wright Brothers’ legacy.When Dayton’s Steele High School closed in 1940, its faculty and staff, including principal JayW. Holmes, were transferred to the Wilbur Wright building, and the school became WilburWright High School. Among the notable graduates of WWHS are: Vic Cassano (1941), pizzabusinessman; Don “Monk” Meineke (1948), UD and NBA basketball player; artist Bing Davis(1955); Stanley Pottinger (1958), U.S. Assistant Attorney General under Nixon; and actor KenJenkins (1958), who is perhaps best known for his role on the TV comedy Scrubs.In 1982, the school was converted back to a junior high, serving in that capacity until the springof 2009, when the school was closed permanently. In 2010, most of the old Wilbur WrightMS-564: Wilbur Wright High School Alumni Collection2
