Roy Turner "Sunshine" Cook, Class of '68

Also served as President of Freshmen & Sophomore Classes. Voted Best all around Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years. I attend BVHS in the First and Second Grade.

My most memorable moment was when Steve Crawford, Pat Mullins, Richard Bunn, Ray Rush and I went cruising in Ray's father's white Corvair. No one had a license, since I was the oldest, I drove. We were riding in Benning Hills and were stopped by the Police. I gave him my learner's permit, he looked at it and told me that I needed to get it renewed, and instructed us to go home. On the way back to Ray's house, we ran out of gas. We pushed it to a gas station, but the gas tank had a lock on it. We pushed it all of the way home. Ray lived at the end of Walker Street.

Graduated from Columbus College. Currently own and operate a Hot Dog Emporium in Columbus, called "Cook's Place" located at Moon & Miller Rds. 50's decor. Private dining room with BHS memorabilia.
