The Northview community is deeply saddened by the death of Crossroads' teacher Kim Slot on September 16. As you know, Kim suffered courageously through a prolonged battle with cancer. The Northview community will miss her more than simple words can express. She was not just our co-worker but our good friend, our neighbor and a loving Northview parent. Memories of her warmth, her spirit, her faith, her strength, her kindness and her humility will be cherished by all who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Arrangements are pending and will be posted here when they are received.

The Northview Wildcat Football team took to their Facebook page to share their thoughts, stating:

Please join us as we offer our thoughts and prayers to the family of Kim Slot who passed away last night. Kim was a beloved teacher at Crossroads Middle School who valiantly fought cancer and is survived by two beautiful young daughters.

We ask that you rally around this family, who has already survived so much after the death of Northview's own, fallen police officer Trevor Slot.

Officer Trevor Slot was killed in the line of duty after a bank robbery in October 2011. He was struck by by a vehicle on the scene following a high speed chase.
