Community to celebrate Amite valedictorian denied walk

Almost three weeks after the valedictorian of Amite High School was denied his walk across the stage because of his facial hair, a state leader is giving him his own graduation.

The celebration for Andrew Jones will be held June 17 at the African-American Heritage Museum, 1600 Phoenix Square in Hammond at 7 p.m.
