The end of the year is quickly approaching, and we are so proud of our students and their academic performance. We have seen many students achieve success in both academics and citizenship. We hope that you will be able to attend our graduation to celebrate the hard work of our Frank Church students. I also want to thank our staff for the dedication that they show to ensuring our students have a complete and rewarding high school experience.

Christopher Tapp Visits Frank Church Forensic Science Classes
On April 19, all past and present Forensic Science students met with Christopher Tapp. He was wrongfully committed for a crime back in 1996 in Idaho Falls. He spent 21 years in prison and was finally exonerated of all charges in 2019. He is featured in the Innocence Project, which the forensics classes study each quarter. During his presentation, he shared details about his wrongful conviction, how he worked with the Innocence Project to help free him, and shared stories of his prison life. He is now married and still lives in Idaho Falls.
"Eye-opening! You always read stuff but never see it. It takes more than your life, Tapp lost his family, freedom, and happiness. It changed him. Not all cops are good but not all cops are bad either."
"I feel really grateful that I got the opportunity to hear history and I was surprised to notice that I had already known most of it."
"I think him coming to Frank is awesome. He wants his voice to be heard and he is giving advice from experience and it's cool that someone does that."
"I think it broadened perspective for everyone, and was interesting to hear."
"Having Christopher come and share his story, raw and in real life really helped my perspective on these real life cases. And how something tragic like this could happen to any of us. I appreciate him for joining us here at Frank Church."
