Inscription.  
"Cooper entered the Pageant on a lark and never expected to win. She was only eighteen, and about to enter her senior year at a private day school in the rural New Jersey community of Hackettstown. Cooper was stunned by her victory. She had no show business aspirations and was unwilling to forego a year of school to fulfill her duties as Miss America."

Angela Saulino Osborne, Miss America: The Dream Lives On, Taylor Publishing Company, Dallas, 1995, p. 87
 
Erected by Miss America Organization.
