February 4, 2011

The state is planning a ceremony next week to mark the 100th anniversary of late President Ronald Reagan's birth.

The Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration is scheduled for Feb. 10 at the Indiana Statehouse. Gov. Mitch Daniels and former Congressman Lee Hamilton will talk about their personal memories of President Reagan, who was born Feb. 6, 1911.

The ceremony also will feature 16-year-old Hunter Wainscott of Frankfort, who won an essay contest about Reagan. A choir from an Indianapolis high school will perform.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman said the celebration is a chance to reflect on Reagan's contributions to the country and to Indiana. She said many young Hoosiers are just now learning of Reagan's legacy.

The celebration is part of events nationwide celebrating Reagan's life.
