Franklin Regional students get clear backpacks in wake of stabbing

Submitted
All 1,240 Franklin Regional Senior High School students received small, clear bags with a district logo on Monday, May 5, 2014, to carry clothes for gym class, cords for their electronic devices and other items. #1 Cochran car dealership donated about 2,000 bags, enough for the district to save any extras for next year's freshman class.

Franklin Regional Senior High School handed out clear plastic backpacks to students on Monday after a mass stabbing last month.

The backpacks include the logo “FR Strong” and are the latest in a series of steps to help students recover from the attacks on April 9.

The student charged in the stabbings, Alex Hribal, 16, faces a preliminary hearing in June on 21 counts of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, and a school weapons violation.

The backpacks have been donated by #1 Cochran, a major car dealer.

Two students remained in Forbes Regional Hospital Monday, one in fair condition. The other was moved back to intensive care over the weekend.
