Conference officials say she wasn't.
But Erwin justified listing the honor on her professional resume - a part of her official application for the Education Commissioner's job in Kentucky - by saying that she signed off on them.
Using that rationale, will she claim any new hardware from the Kane County Educator of the Year Awards banquet held on May 18? If so, here's a list of Bab's possible new awards:
The R. B. Mades Associate Educator of the Year Award
Elementary Educator of the Year
Middle School Educator of the Year
High School Educator of the Year
Administrator of the Year
Private/Parochial Educator Award
Support Staff Award
Regional Superintendent’s Award
and Kane County Educator of the Year Award
Kane County Support Staff Award
J.L. Hanson Middle School Teacher of the Year Award
Congratulations Dr. Erwin. Well Done!
