Anyone wishing to donate memorials can send checks to the Boonville R-I Education Foundation with 'Nicki Fund' in the memo line. The address is 736 Main St, Boonville, MO 65233.

The family will be able to decide how to use the funds at the high school to support programs and activities Nicki enjoyed.

Alexopoulos, a long-term former teacher who worked in the district from the late 1970s to the mid 90s, was murdered in Kansas City more than a week ago. According to several former students, she made a huge impact in their lives. A Facebook Page was set up in her honor as well.
