Bethine Memorial Wall

Boise State University has dedicated a memorial wall to Bethine Church in the Student Union Building. Bethine, the wife of former Idaho Senator Frank Church and an alumni of Boise Junior College, was born into a politically active family and remained a prominent figure in Idaho politics throughout her life. In partnership with her husband, she earned the nickname of “Idaho’s third senator.” She was actively involved in Frank Church’s four campaigns for the senate and his campaign for the presidency in 1976.
