“Ryan White” State Historical Marker Will Be Dedicated in Arcadia, Indiana

A public dedication ceremony for an Indiana state historical marker commemorating Ryan White and his efforts to raise national AIDS awareness while battling the disease as a teenager, is scheduled for Friday, August 30, 2019. The marker dedication will begin at 9:00 a.m. on the grounds of Hamilton Heights Middle School at 420 West North St., Arcadia, Indiana 46030. White attended Hamilton Heights High School at this location from August 31, 1987 until his death on April 8, 1990. Parking is available in the school parking lot and along the side streets.

The text follows for the state marker entitled “Ryan White (1971-1990)”:
Kokomo native Ryan White was diagnosed with AIDS in 1984 after contracting the virus from a contaminated hemophilia treatment.
He faced intense discrimination from his community in a time of fear and misunderstanding about AIDS and was prevented from attending school in his hometown. Hamilton Heights High School welcomed White in 1987 after the family moved to Cicero.

Anticipating White’s arrival, Hamilton Heights developed an acclaimed AIDS education campaign. White raised national AIDS awareness while battling the disease and spoke before the Presidential Commission on the HIV Epidemic. He was named Sagamore of the Wabash for his advocacy. The Ryan White CARE Act, providing funds for HIV/AIDS treatment, passed soon after his death.

The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony for this state historical marker that examines Ryan White’s battle with AIDS and his commitment to educating others about the disease in the late 1980s. Hamilton Heights High School openly welcomed White in 1987 at a time when discrimination against those with the disease was common.
School leadership and the student body fostered a climate of acceptance and trust within the community thanks to their widely praised educational campaign.

The program is free to attend, but does require a ticket. Tickets can be obtained through: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ryan-white-historical-marker-dedication-tickets-60956749278. Following the program at the middle school and the unveiling of the new historical marker, there will be a short ceremony at Cicero Cemetery where White is buried for those interested in attending.

This is the seventh state historical marker in Hamilton County. For more information on other markers in the county, see: https://www.in.gov/history/markers/3819.htm#hamilton.

State historical markers commemorate significant individuals, organizations, places, and events in Indiana history.
These markers help communities throughout the state promote, preserve, and present their history for the education and enjoyment of residents and tourists of all ages. For over 100 years, the Indiana Historical Bureau has been marking Indiana history. Since 1946, the marker format has been the large roadside marker, which has the familiar dark blue background with gold lettering and the outline of the state of Indiana at the top. Over 650 of these markers have been
installed over the years.

To all Hamilton County Historical Society Patrons & Noblesville Citizens,

There has been backlash about the Orlando shooter's name being on one of the crosses placed outside of our building honoring the Orlando shooting victims. These crosses and candles were placed there after a Friday night vigil. This vigil was not orchestrated by the Hamilton County Historical Society nor were the crosses and candles placed there by us. The Historical Society is fortunate to have this area downtown, but permissions to use the grounds around us are given by someone other than the museum.

Thank you.

Update: I do understand that the name has been removed.
