While students and teachers were making the move to the new Crossett High School campus, they discovered old and forgotten school newspapers.

The newspapers were published by the school’s journalism class over the years. The oldest document found was from Sept. 30, 1938, and others dated to the 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

“These are very important documents and will be stored in the central office vault for safekeeping,”journalism advisor Kristi Clanton said.

The newspapers were well-preserved, bound in wooden folders and plastic sleeves.

The earliest newspapers have no photographs, only drawings. They included was a sports section, a section for clubs and events or projects, and an elementary news section. The papers also had small business ads that drawn in the corners of some pages. They had many articles about the students themselves, such as new student, where they came from and how they felt about coming to CHS, and students who won awards.
