The Affected

Al Sparkman

Big Horn High School Principal Al Sparkman is a people person.

He chose a career focused on kids. Every day, he communicated with students, teachers, parents and the community at large. Every evening, he went home “stoked to do it all over again” the next day.

Now, he is finding a way to shoulder his usual responsibilities — and new worries — amid the closures of the coronavirus pandemic.

Sparkman is the latest feature in The Affected, a series by The Sheridan Press highlighting the people and businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic in the Sheridan area.
