Less than two months after they were wounded in the shooting at Noblesville West Middle School, Ella Whistler and Jason Seaman took center stage at the Noblesville Fourth of July Parade.

Whistler and Seaman served as the parade Grand Marshals.

Community members lined the parade route and gave the two a standing ovation.

A court hearing for the 13-year old charged in the Noblesville school shooting of his teacher and a student is rescheduled for this fall.

The juvenile hearing is now set for Sept. 10 and 11 in Hamilton Couty Circuit Court, according to the court administrator Wednesday. Last week, the court approved a request from the suspect’s attorneys for more time to review evidence in the case.

Nearly three weeks after a student shot his teacher and classmate at a Noblesville middle school, district leaders Tuesday announced new building safety enhancements and increased mental health supports.

Funding is in place for some items, but leaders say they must seek additional finances to cover current and future measures, including state and federal grants or possibly try a property-tax increase referendum on the November ballot.

A trial date is set later this month for the 13-year-old boy charged in the shooting of his teacher and a fellow student at Noblesville Middle School.
