After nearly 10 years of advising Paragon, the school’s yearbook, and Crier, the school’s newspaper, Ms. Sarah-Anne Lanman, publications adviser, has been awarded  Special Recognition Yearbook Adviser of the Year from the Journalism Education Association. This award recognizes Ms. Lanman’s support in documenting diverse perspectives and her dedication to scholastic journalism. 

“Winning this award would not be possible without the hard work of my students, who always work insanely hard to get their publications into the hands of the student body,” Ms. Lanman said. “It also wouldn’t be possible with the support of the administration, who trust me and my students to do real, honest and professional journalism.”

Ms. Lanman will be honored at the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention in Los Angeles in April.

“I am always so happy I get to do such cool and creative stuff, and it’s incredibly nice to be recognized for all the hard work that I put in alongside the staff,” she said.
