Over the weekend, Unalaska held a memorial service for Alexis Magalong, a high school senior who died of hypothermia earlier this month.

KUCB's Hope McKenney produced this audio postcard from the event, where hundreds of Magalong's relatives, friends, and community members gathered to celebrate her life.

For those grieving Magalong's death, the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA) said counseling and mental health services are available. Unalaskans can call APIA's help line at 359-2743 to speak with a provider over the phone or make a face-to-face appointment.

Hope McKenney reported for KUCB from 2019 until 2022. She was KUCB's news director starting in 2021.
