The Crimson Yearbook

Written, photographed, designed and edited entirely by students, the Crimson yearbook has won more national awards than any high school yearbook in Kentucky. At around 400 full color pages, it is the only permanent record of your time at Manual, with in-depth storytelling and gorgeous photography by the talented student journalists in the Journalism & Communication magnet.
