Carrie Faust, MJE, got her start in yearbooking in 1987 when her cross country coach - also the yearbook adviser - said, “Girl, you have got to get over your shyness and start meeting people!” Now, 30 years later, looks like that plan worked out more than they could have ever imagined!


Today, known for her energy and enthusiasm, Carrie advises the Smoky Hill Summit yearbook, NEXT feature magazine, SmokyNow.com online news, and teaches at yearbook workshops and journalism conferences across the country every year. A former JEA Board Member, Carrie was one of JEA’s Rising Stars in 2008, a Distinguished Adviser in 2009, the Colorado Journalism Teacher of the Year in 2011, a JEA Medal of Merit honoree in 2013, a CSPA Gold Key recipient in 2017, and an NSPA Pioneer in 2018. The Summit yearbook has been honored nationally by NSPA and CSPA 17 times in the last 15 years.


Her girls, Carter (19) and Campbell (17), have followed in Carrie’s yerdy footsteps as the Editor-in-Chief of yearbook and visual marketer for student leadership. The Fausts LOVE yearbook!
