Hamilton Heights School Corporation has created its official hashtag #WeAreHuskies. The hashtag is designed to help boost pride and Heights’ brand as well as organize posts on social media to shine a light on all things Hamilton Heights. 
“We wanted to offer a way for social media users to be able to organize content related to Hamilton Heights and create conversations as well as offer another medium to interact with our schools,” said Tim Gray, Secondary Instructional Coach / Technology Integration Specialist, who is credited with helping to create #WeAreHuskies. “We think the moniker aptly describes who we are as a district – inside and outside school grounds. Since their inception hashtags have evolved in a relatively short time into a powerful multipurpose social media tool in a 21st century world. We are really excited about having an official hashtag for everyone in our district and beyond to categorize, find, and join conversations related to Hamilton Heights School Corporation.”

  • Tod Windlan eager to make mark coaching Lady Kats
    8/20/2019 

    Strange how things can change . . .  and then seem to happen for a reason.

    Tod Windlan, recently named the varsity girls basketball coach at Kokomo High School, might still be coaching girls basketball at Hamilton Heights had things worked out.

    But after leading the Class 3A Lady Huskies to a state runner-up finish in the 2012-13 season, a year after winning school’s first girls sectional title since 2002-2003 in his first season at the Hamilton County school, finding the right teaching job didn’t work out for him.

    “I interviewed for the PE job and I was devastated when I didn’t get it. And I was wanting to get out of the golf business,’’ said Windlan, who was the PGA Club professional at Grandview in Anderson, his hometown. “The only job available involved maintenance and outside athletic work; it wasn’t enough (not a career move).

    “I loved it at Heights. I loved the community and the people, and we had a good girls’ basketball program there. I really could have seen myself retiring there under the right circumstances. Now, I feel the same about Kokomo. I really love my new opportunity!’’

    Windlan originally was the girls coach at Frankton for four years. He was at Anderson Highland for two years, but there was no teaching vacancy when the Anderson schools merged. He was at Yorktown and Delta, each for 1 year.

    You might say he had some bad luck at some of his previous stops.

    Things happen for a reason . . .

  • 8/20/2019 Dear Editor,
    Members of our congregation’s leadership team just returned from the annual assembly of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, where they joined more than 650 leaders of orders of Catholic sisters who sent a letter to President Trump imploring him to end all divisive language. 
    Our entire Leadership Team from Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods also felt compelled to expand on this letter.
    Our congregation is a community of Catholic women religious who collaborate with others to create a more just and hope-filled world through prayer, education, service and advocacy.
  • 8/5/2019 Dear Editor,
    I am writing this to Congress about our ongoing fiscal crisis and requesting that you use your office and influence to enact real structural change to our Federal budget. I am expected to manage my affairs, both business and personal, in a manner which is functional and sustainable and my government should as well. I live in Noblesville, where the median household income is roughly $74,681 and the debt load is $168,958. If my neighbors and I were to budget like the Federal government, that debt load would be a staggering $424,522. I have to point out that the debt number I am using as the average, and includes debt free households as well as borrowers and is likely much higher in reality. Imagine two teachers starting their first jobs in Noblesville with over $400,000 in debt. 
  • 7/31/2019 Dear Editor,
    It’s back to school again and in July! What happened to summer vacation for students who need the time for summer jobs, visiting relatives, experiencing summer vacations with their families and just having time for themselves?
    The balanced school calendar which is also “year around school” affects all of us, whether we have children in school or not, and three examples are the moved up dates for county fairs, the Indiana State Fair timing and the closing of public pools long before the summer heat is gone.
    Added to this scenario are the free handouts of new school supplies every year to students. My questions are:,Are the students being taught to reuse their school supplies from the year before? Do the parents pass down outgrown supplies to younger siblings such as backpacks?
    The bottom line is, why must the students be receiving free new supplies every year? I welcome an honest answer.

  • 8/21/2019 I continue to be amazed when I ask women what the number one killer of women is, the majority respond, “breast cancer.” While breast cancer is the number one cancer killer of women, and is estimated to have claimed about 40,000 women last year, it is not the biggest threat women face. It’s estimated that ten times that many died of heart disease last year.
    Cardiovascular disease is arguably the most important women’s health issue, and is largely preventable. How can women be so unaware that they have a one in 31 chance of dying from breast cancer but a much higher one in three chance of dying from heart disease? Could it be that breast cancer gets so much more coverage in mainstream and social media? Is breast cancer generally more frightening & potentially disfiguring? Is heart disease just plain boring to talk about?
  • 8/21/2019 I recently received an email from my relative, Kermit Ross, with the subject line, “Murder! . . . In Deming!”

    Needless to say, that got my attention.

    It seems Kermit, who now lives in Texas, but grew up in Deming, was researching his family tree when he made the startling discovery that his second great-uncle was the central figure in one of Hamilton County’s biggest murder trials.

    Better make that TWO of the county’s biggest trials. Amasa J. Foulke was tried twice for the murder of his wife — once in 1874 and again, a year later.

    Although newspaper accounts of the 1874 trial are no longer available, the results are well known. Foulke was found guilty of murder in the first degree and sentenced to life imprisonment.

    8/21/2019 What’s it take to raise an Indiana State Fair Grand Champion Market Lamb?

    Just ask Noblesville's Lane Slaton.

    It’s the third consecutive year that a lamb he’s raised has achieved the award.

    “My greatest achievements are winning the Indiana State Fair three years in a row and winning both the Ewe and Market Lamb show in the same year,” said Lane Slaton, a Hamilton Heights High School senior.

    That’s right. Not only did the 17-year-old have the Grand Champion Market Lamb, he also had the Supreme Champion Ewe. 

    “To our knowledge, no one has won both in the same year,” Gail Slaton, his mom, said.

This Week's Events

8/20/2019
Warner Sallman is an American born artist who was born in the late 19th century. He devoted much of his life to creating religious images that focused on Jesus Christ. Each of Sallman’s pieces is meant to provide a depth of religious value and bring a sense hope and comfort to the viewer. His most famous work is “The Head of Christ”, which he completed in 1941. The timing of this piece could not have been better as the world was in the early stages of World War II, and the U.S. would soon be entering the fight. This work would be printed in pocket size photos and handed out to the soldiers being shipped off to war to provide comfort and inspiration to many. There is a good chance that you have seen this picture as it has been printed hundreds of millions of times. If you would like to see “The Head of Christ” and many more of Warner Sallman's original works then you can visit us at the Scheierman Gallery, located on Anderson University’s campus in Anderson, Indiana. We are open Tuesdays and Fridays from 1-4 p.m. or you can make an appointment to visit. We are closed during university breaks, which can be found on the Anderson University Academic Calendar, with exception to summer break when you can visit by appointment only. We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
