A few days late, but Massena High grad gets his diploma


MASSENA - It may have been a few days late, but Massena High School senior Troy Myers finally received his diploma on Tuesday, from Superintendent Roger B. Clough II and Assistant Principal Richard Norris in a special little ceremony held on the high school football field.

Troy suffered an injury a couple of days prior to Massena Central High School’s class of 2012 graduation ceremony on Saturday. Instead, he underwent surgery the afternoon of graduation and was unable to attend.

Troy was unable to join in the full pomp and circumstance of Saturday’s graduation, but Mr. Clough and Mr. Norris were determined to make his ceremony memorable. Jim Myers, Troy’s father, was there to share in the celebration.

Troy, the starting quarterback for the school’s football team, walked proudly across the 50-yard line to shake Mr. Clough’s hand and receive his diploma.

Happily, Troy is steadily recovering from his surgery and will be ready to pursue a degree in criminal justice at SUNY Brockport. He also has plans to play football at the college.
