Student Press Review

Ed Sullivan, Executive Director of CSPA
Edmund Sullivan serves as executive director of the CSPA. A former high school newspaper editor, he recalls being forced to watch as his school’s principal burned an issue he had edited. He considers that episode as having “seared” the First Amendment into his consciousness. As a result, he has dedicated his working life to the cause of a free student press. Besides his work at Columbia, he served on the SPLC Board of Directors from 1983 to 2000. His numerous awards include the Laurence B. Johnson Award for Best Editorial Writing from the Educational Press Association of America,Distinguished Service Award from Community College Journalism Association, the Reid Montgomery Service Award from CMA, the NSPA Pioneer Award and the Gold Key from CSPA. He was inducted into the National Scholastic Journalism Hall of Fame in 1998.
