Wal-Mart honors Crowley as Teacher of the Year
To the delight of her co-workers and her kindergarten students at St. Agnes School, Kathy Crowley was named local Teacher of the Year by the Vermillion Wal-Mart on Monday, May 8.

The award, which was given as part of Wal-Mart's 12th annual Teacher of the Year program, comes in honor of National Teacher's Day on May 8. Crowley received a $1,000 grant for St. Agnes Catholic School, a $100 gift card to buy supplies for classroom supplies, a Teacher of the Year polo shirt and a personalized certificate.

Teachers were nominated by members of the community during February and selected by a committee of store or club associates.

"The teachers in our area are superb," said Wal-Mart Manager Keith Pearson. "The selection process was not an easy one, but we are happy to recognize Kathy Crowley and share this great news with our community."

The Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year recognition is part of a three-tiered program. All local winning teachers have the opportunity to apply for state Teacher of the Year honors to receive a $10,000 grant for their schools.

Each state winner is automatically entered into the national competition. The one national winner, who is recognized in the fall, will receive an additional $25,000 education grant for a total of $36,00 for his or her school.
