HILLSBORO, Kan. The Marion County community remembers the life of a high school student athlete who died last week at a church camp in Colorado.
Demarius Cox attended Hillsboro High School this past school year and ran track as part of a Class 2A team that finished second at the state track meet in Wichita last month.
The Hillsboro school district superintendent says Cox died in his sleep at the camp. The teen is remembered as someone who always had a smile on his face while walking the halls of Hillsboro High School. Both of his parents work for the district and school leaders say the family is still working on funeral plans.
