Fund set up in honor of Alexis Jackson

The family of Alexis Jackson, the Glasgow Middle School student killed in a tragic murder-suicide in March, have set up a fund for people to honor her memory.

Donations will be used for a scholarship in her name for a senior in the SOAR Project at Yorktown High School and will be sent to Los Ninos de Maria, an organization that helps poor children in the Dominican Republic.

The Sleepy Hollow Woods community, where Alexis’s grandparents, Frieda and Harold Hancock, live, sponsored a memorial 5K run/walk yesterday to raise money for those programs. Alexis had been a student at Belvedere Elementary School, and Frieda Hancock had been a longtime contributor to the Belvedere community for many years.
