Frerichs was a junior from Bassett majoring in exercise science. She was studying to become an athletic trainer and worked and a prominent leader in Campus Recreation.

“Amber Frerichs was an active participant in student life and activities at UNK, particularly in Campus Recreation and our Wellness Center. Many knew her and will miss her. It’s devastating for us, but more so for her family and friends, who our hearts go out to,” said university spokesperson Dr. Gilbert Hinga.
