On Thursday, Sept. 15, the Delta County School Board held its meeting at the North Fork Montessori School at Crawford. The school board and the principals of all the public schools in the North Fork Valley used the occasion to express gratitude to the Cocker Kids Foundation for support that totaled over $1 million over the last 20 years. Many memories were shared, highlighting the graciousness of Pam and Joe Cocker, who invited the community at large into their own home on a regular basis and touched so many lives.

During the afternoon, the school board toured the school and the students presented Constitution Day skits in front of a large, paper backdrop of the United States Constitution. One student said, "If we don't uphold the Constitution, it's only worth the paper that it's written on," and just then, the backdrop of the Constitution slipped and fell to the ground, punctuating that statement in a most timely fashion.
