Mrs. Koch was the humbled recipient of an award this morning.
It was a surprise. Her younger daughter, Natalie, somehow finagled getting Mrs. Koch away from the front gate this morning in order to attend the ceremony.
The award is from the Crisis Connection here in southern Indiana. They're all about zero tolerance toward violence of any kind – and helping those who are victim to it.
Mrs. Koch and her family have long supported Crisis Connection and its efforts to help those who need an advocate to help them find a better way to live.
