NCCS offers support following student’s death

CHAMPLAIN — Northeastern Clinton High School officials are offering their support to the school community following the death of student Holden R. Provost, 16, of Sciota on Thursday.

Holden was well-liked by students, administrators, faculty and staff and sustained close relationships in the district, which he had attended since elementary school, according to a media release from the district.

“He touched a lot of people here,” NCCS Interim Superintendent A. Paul Scott told the Press-Republican.

In addition, Holden, the son of Craig Provost and Tina McDonald, was a student who enjoyed learning, according to the district, and particularly enjoyed history.

Last July, he made the school’s 10th-grade high honor roll.

“It’s a tragic loss,” Northeastern Clinton High School Principal Steve Gratto told the Press-Republican.

The district stated in the media release it had been informed Holden’s death “was not associated with any communicable disease.”

In the days ahead, Gratto, along with the High School’s counselors and nurse, will strive to be there for Holden’s family, schoolmates and the district employees who worked with him, the release said.
