Amy “A.J.” Slater, Campus Life & Leadership coordinator at MCC-Blue River from 2005 to earlier this year, died Aug. 9.

Visitation will be 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16, at Meyers Funeral Chapel, 1600 W. Main St., Blue Springs, with the funeral service starting at 6 p.m. The family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Children’s Mercy Hospital autism department to honor Amy’s selfless service to the community and to honor her and partner Tasha’s son Jayden.

Amy “was an ardent student advocate, and offered guidance and friendship to many, many Blue River students,” MCC-Blue River President Dr. Michael Banks wrote in a message to the campus community. “Please keep Tasha and Jayden and her extended family in your thoughts and prayers.”
