Mari McCarville, a former student of the North Fork Montessori School, was one of 42 young leaders recognized with a Boettcher Foundation Scholarship in May 2016. A graduate of Grand Junction High School, she is majoring in music and biology, with a concentration in neuroscience, at the University of Denver.
Each Boettcher Scholar is asked to name an influential teacher and Mari selected her preschool/kindergarten teacher, Jenny Eyler. Eyler was awarded $1,000 to be used in her classroom. The Boettcher Foundation asks that the award be used to benefit as many students as possible so Eyler bought a set of Montessori bells that can be used by all students for years to come. Providing a chance to experience music at an early age by playing the perfectly pitched bells seemed fitting.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
