EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Many people have an educator in their life who has influenced them.
KLTV has decided to honor those special educators in our viewers' lives with a Teacher Tribute campaign.
This year's first winner is Kristy Watson, an early childhood education teacher at Lindale Independent School District.
Wednesday, representatives with KLTV and East Texas Professional Credit Union met with Watson to surprise her with $100 and teacher supplies.
