Grand Marshal for Noblesville July 4th Festivities Announced
Posted on May 14th, 2015
Mayor John Ditslear has announced that Noblesville resident and Hamilton County Judge Steve Nation will serve as the grand marshal for the 2015 Noblesville Fourth of July Parade.
"For more than 30 years, Judge Nation has been a well-respected member of the community that has impacted and improved Noblesville. I am pleased to honor the work Judge Nation has done for the city and Hamilton County, and acknowledge how he and his family continue to be excellent role models to Noblesville residents through their continued service to local families and children," Ditslear said.
The Honorable Steve Nation has been serving Hamilton County continuously since 1979 and has been a Noblesville resident since 1977.
"When there are people in our community in need, I have always enjoyed working with others to get those needs satisfied. It has always been important to me that the people are helped, not who gets credit for the accomplishment," Nation said. "I appreciate this honor, and I accept it for all the people I've worked with in the public to help better the community, I'm riding for them."
When he is not making a difference in the courtroom, Nation has been engaged in the community with the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club, Hamilton County United Way and has coached Noblesville youth football, soccer and baseball leagues.
"My personality is that I love to serve. I have always found Noblesville and Hamilton County to be likeminded people. They care for their children. They care for their families. And they care for their community and want to serve. It's not a bad place to put your roots," Nation said.
Nation and his wife, Peggy, have two grown children, Laura (Brandon) Bennett and Jeffrey, and one grandson, Michael Bennett.
