The halls are a little emptier at Avon Middle High School as students continue attending class until June 24 without the 53 seniors who graduated this month. About 82 percent of the graduates are going on to two- or four-year colleges, according to guidance counselor Myles McPartland. A couple of the grads are going into the military, he said, and the rest are going to work, into certificate programs, or are undecided. The June 1 graduation ceremony recognized the absence of Nick Watson, a teenager who died in a car crash in August 2011 after receiving a clean bill of health in his battle with cancer. His family presented a scholarship in his name, McPartland said.
