Watson, who became the Elburn Herald’s first sportswriter in 1974 and spent 28 years covering Kaneland sports, was inducted by Harter Middle School Patricia Pattermann. Erdmann arrived at Kaneland High School in 1974 and developed a single-course journalism curriculum into a three-tiered sequential program. She also advised The Krier student newspaper for 34 years. Erdmann was inducted by Kaneland graduate Eric Ferguson, co-host of the “Eric and Kathy” morning show on 101.9 The Mix. Photos by Keith Beebe
