Judy Rae Hacker will be honored at Clawson Middle School Sept. 15.
Gone, but not forgotten. Judy Rae Hacker was not only a coach and mentor to female athletes across Clawson, but also their role model.

Adam and Shannon Kopsch said 'I do' next to the baseball field at Clawson Middle School where they shared their first kiss 20 years ago.
When Adam Kopsch and his fiancé, Shannon McEwen, first told their friends and family that they were going to hold their wedding ceremony at a local school, they got a few weird looks, to say the least. To them, it made perfect sense. Shannon and Adam, who both grew up in Clawson, shared their very first kiss in front of Clawson Middle School, right next to the baseball diamond. It was 1991; he was in eighth grade, she was in seventh, and it was a crush of all sorts. “Both of us were waiting to see who'd make the first move,” said Adam. “I grabbed her and laid a kiss right on her, and said I'd see her tomorrow.” Though they had gone their separate ways over the years, Shannon and Adam reconnected through the power of the Internet and fell …

Two Clawson natives will wed Saturday at Clawson Middle School, the sight of their very first kiss.
Clawson Middle School will soon hear wedding bells ringing as longtime loves, Adam Kopsch and Shannon McEwen, tie the knot Saturday afternoon on the school’s grounds. To many, the idea of a wedding at a middle school might seem a little out of the ordinary, but to the couple, it makes sense. Growing up in Clawson, Adam and Shannon shared their very first kiss near the school’s baseball field as students and it is in the exact same spot where they will exchange vows 20 years later. “We wanted to get married somewhere special, some place symbolic and romantic,” Kopsch said. The ceremony will begin promptly at 4 p.m. Clawson Middle School is located at 150 John M Avenue.
