The Crimson Crier


The Crimson Crier is a state and national award-winning scholastic newspaper. Our goal is to communicate professional journalism to the Sparkman High School student body and community. The paper is a consistent All-Alabama, All-Southern, and gold medal publication. The Crimson Crier publishes eight issues a year. The paper is advised by Erin Coggins, MJE.

The Crimson Crier’s mission statement is: 

Journalists will honor the school community and the journalistic profession by placing, truth, accuracy, and objectivity first. We will use these three characteristics to best serve our student body and our community. We will strive for work of the highest quality.

We will review Freedom of the Press as an inalienable right of people in a free society and know that with this freedom, we have the responsibility to discuss, question, and challenge actions.
