Greg Mix died Monday, December 9, the Lincoln County R-III School District said.

In lieu of flowers, the Mix family is going to raise money to start a Mix Movement Scholarship Fund to help young people in the community.

Earlier this year, Mix's students rallied in support of their teacher, creating a movement to raise awareness and show Mr. Mix how much he means to them. The group launched the #TheMixMovement on Twitter, and a YouCaring page raised more than $10,000 to help the Mix family.

Marketing students at Troy Buchanan High School also put together a 10-minute tribute video for Mr. Mix.
