Noblesville Schools announced Sept. 4 it will be hosting a “Hero Night” to honor the community organizations, individuals and businesses who supported Noblesville Schools during the May 25 shooting at Noblesville West Middle School.
Hero Night will be at 5 p.m. Sept. 25, in conjunction with the Noblesville East/West football game at Beaver Materials Field on North 19th Street.
The district said honorees can expect free game admission, tailgate refreshments and a recognition program. The general community is encouraged to attend the game and celebrate the honorees.
“We’re so thankful for the support we received and want to give back to the many heroes in our community,” said Rick Fields, athletic director for Noblesville East and West Middle Schools. “On May 25 we had first responders, medical personnel, counselors, businesses, churches and others from all over central Indiana responding generously to our needs. We hope they can all attend this event so we can express our appreciation. I can’t think of a better way to come together than to watch our kids having a good time.”
Fields said he is working to identify and invite as many May 25 supporters to the event as he can but admits he may not be aware of everyone.
“There were so many people that day that dropped off food or water, and I don’t want to miss honoring anyone. Please contact me if you supported us that day in any way and haven’t received a Hero Night invitation yet. We want everyone there.”
Those who supported Noblesville Schools on May 25 and would like to RSVP to the event as an honoree can contact Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org. The general public can purchase game tickets that evening on site.
