HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (April 26, 2015) — Hannah Wilson graduated from Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers. On Saturday, hundreds of people came out to honor the daughter, sister, and friend who was taken from loved ones too soon.

They gathered in a spot Hannah knew well – the Indiana Elite Cheer Center cheerleading gym in Noblesville. Hannah was a member of the Indiana Elite Cheerleading Squad for about ten years.

Her sister Haley Wilson was filled with emotion at the outpouring of support, “This is just awesome, all the support.”

The group released balloons with handwritten notes and remembered the one-of-a-kind Hoosier.

“It was just shocking. You hear about this stuff sometimes. You just don`t think it is going to be someone you know. I never expected it to hit so close to home,” said Hannah’s friend Annie Sarano.

“It says so much about her when everybody has something nice to say. She just genuinely cared about you,” said Hannah’s friend Abby King.

Family and friends say they will continue to pray and remember Hannah as a girl who made everyone feel special.
