HSE Schools Mourns the Loss of Fallen Police Officer

August 01, 2022

Our school community has experienced tremendous loss this year. We are deeply saddened by the death of Elwood police officer Noah Shahnavaz, a 2016 graduate of Fishers High School.
While a student at Fishers, Noah was involved in marching band, drumline and wrestling. He is remembered for his friendly, easy-going and caring personality and was said to have always gone out of his way to make others feel appreciated. During his time at FHS, Noah expressed an interest in law enforcement, enrolling in a specialized class his senior year.
“His dream was to serve others and we are proud of what he accomplished in such a short time, both in the military and with Elwood Police,” says Fishers High School Principal Jason Urban. “The entire FHS Tiger family grieves this tragic loss of such a promising young man full of talent and potential.”
Immediately following his graduation from Fishers High School, Noah entered the U.S. Army, attaining his Air Assault badge and the rank of Sergeant during his five-year term. He then joined the Elwood Police Department in August 2021 after successful completion of training from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.
“Noah’s passing is a reminder of the dangers our brave men and women willingly face every day to keep us safe,” said Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Stokes. “We ask that everyone please continue to keep Officer Shahnavaz’s loved ones, friends, colleagues and the entire Elwood Police Department in your hearts.”
Noah is survived by two siblings and his parents. His mother is currently an elementary teacher for HSE Schools.
A moment of silence will be held at the all-staff convocation on Tuesday in remembrance of HSE students, staff and family members we have lost this year.
