Counselors will be available at Perry High School Monday after a student passed away unexpectedly.

According to administrators, Mitchell Williams, who was going into his senior year at the school, died on Thursday. 

Williams died while working for a landscaping contractor on the Ohio Northern University Campus in Tuscarawas County.

“He was another great kid, interacted well with kids, staff liked him, did his work," Perry High School Principal Jason Conrad said, "A successful young man and he will be missed.”

The coroner has not issued a cause of death, but the possibility that heat played a role is an obvious question authorities are asking.

Counselors will be available at the Perry High School library on June 19 from 9 a.m. to noon.
