A teacher in LaPorte is in the running for statewide recognition.

Erin Parker teaches English and Journalism.

She's one of five finalists for Youth Worker of the Year Award by the Indiana Youth Institute.

Parker says she believes every child is just one adult away from leading a better life

and makes it a point to show love to a child who might not be receiving that at home.

The award is given once a year to someone whose efforts are exceptional and make a difference in children.

The winner will be chosen at a two day conference in Indianapolis at the end of this month.

Parker has been a teacher for eight years
