Jaimee Garbig of the Arcanum-Butler School District was awarded the C. Michael Crawford Mentor of the Year Award by April Hoying, director of curriculum for the ESC. This is the 20th year the ESC has given the award. The award is named for Michael Crawford who developed the mentorship program for new teachers in the mid-1990s, which was several years before the state required school districts develop mentorship programs for new teachers. The plaque Hoying received states, “The delicate balance of mentoring is not creating them in your own image but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” Hoying said this speaks to what Garbig was able to do as a mentor.
