Even when initially working away from Sidney following his college days, Thomas P. Milligan always knew that his family's businesses could still hold his future. When his uncle Sam passed away, his father (Patrick H. Milligan, SHS 1946, HoH 1999) told Tom that the time was right if he wanted to return home. "As my dad often liked to say, I came home on 8/8/88 and that's easy to remember," said the 2017 inductee into the Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor.
A former Hall of Honor committee member and chair with degrees from Ohio Wesleyan and Columbia Universities, Milligan (SHS 1978) will be joined by Susan L. Russell (SHS 1970), Martin L. "Mick" Given (SHS 1975), and the late Kenneth W. McCormick (Teacher 1968-93) at the induction in the Sidney High School auditorium on Friday evening April 21 at 7:30pm. A gymnasium reception follows and both events are fully open to the public.
