Fraser attended Grosse Pointe Public Schools, but Verner attended Clawson Public Schools. On Tuesday, Verner’s school system emailed families that “Alex was and is universally adored.” She was a great student, athlete, and leader who lived compassion every day. Her parents, Ted and Nancy, as well as her sister Charlotte and brother TJ, are suffering equally but are already experiencing the uplifting support of this extraordinary community.
