MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (AP) - A memorial service is being planned for a Rhode Island native killed in a skiing accident in Vermont.

Police say the 19-year-old Kendra Bowers was skiing with family and friends Saturday at Sugarbush Ski Resort in Warren, Vt., when she lost control, went off a trail and hit a trail sign. Police say she was treated at the ski area and died upon arrival at Central Vermont Hospital.

Bowers, a Newport native, graduated from St. George’s School in Middletown, R.I., in 2012.

Suzanne McGrady, director of communications at the school, says the school is planning a private memorial service for members of the family and school community. Details are still being worked out.

She says a report that a memorial service was scheduled for Monday was incorrect.
