History of the Har-Ber Herald

The Har-Ber Herald is in its sixteenth year of publication and covers topics relevant to the Wildcat community and surrounding area.

The Herald’s first adviser was Mrs. Samantha Couch who ran the newspaper from 2005-06.

Mrs. Karla Sprague took over the role as new adviser during the 2006-07 school year and ever since has worked to develop the program and to improve the newspaper each year.

During the 2010-2011 year, the newspaper went online for the first time, posting its stories to the web for many more people to view. In 2015 and 2017, the Herald was awarded All Arkansas titles, making it one of the state’s best high publications.

Prior to COVID-19, approximately 1,500 copies were distributed to students, faculty, community members, and schools across the United States. As of August 2020, the Herald went completely digital.

The staff of the Har-Ber Herald strives to provide a publication that:

  • Entertains our readers

  • Publicizes the accomplishments of our school
  • Exposes and explores the daily lives of students and faculty
  • Presents and discusses controversial issues in a respectful manner
