On Aug. 31, 1987, Ryan White entered Hamilton Heights High School with his fellow students. As a person with AIDS, White faced many challenges at a time when much about the disease was unknown. To celebrate White’s life and legacy, community leaders will be reflecting on that historic day. State Rep. Tony Cook, Hamilton Heights High School principal at that time, will discuss White’s first day of school at the event. In addition to the community program, a luncheon will be held for White’s classmates and faculty who worked at the school he attended. Alumni who were in his class who plan to attend the program and the luncheon are asked to RSVP by calling the middle school office at 317-984-3588.
State Rep. Tony Cook (R-Cicero) represents House District 32, which includes all of Tipton County and portions of Hamilton, Madison, Delaware, Howard and Grant counties.
