For the past three years, the athletic departments of Heber Springs and Clinton have chosen a former player, coach, or community member who have given their time and effort to support their community as the Honorary Captain for the Battle of the Little Red game. The Heber Springs Panthers are very excited and honored to announce Larry "Scoop" McCarty as the Honorary Captain for this year. Mr. McCarty, or better known as Scoop, is a 1973 graduate of Heber Springs High School and has been in the journalism industry from the past 41 years. After college, Scoop worked for the local newspaper in Heber Springs until 1988, then newspapers in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Texas. In 2018, he was named as the Texas Sportswriter of the Year. Larry and his wife Michelle moved back to Heber Springs in February 2019 and he is currently a substitute teacher for Heber Springs Schools and still covers Panther sports on marktime.com. We are so appreciative of his coverage of Panther sports throughout the years.

Heber Springs Week 8 Weekly recap with Dr. Ashley https://youtu.be/m3FTUDgHWLY
|STUFF THE BUS| Okay Panther Nation...it is time once again to get ready for the Battle of the Little Red and that means it’s time to STUFF THE BUS! This year the Community Impact Award-Stuff the Bus competition will be a little different. We want you to start collecting those diapers, wipes, and non-perishable food items (Mac&cheese,applesauce, peanut butter crackers, etc.) and bring them anytime between 8:00-4:00, October 26-28 to STUFF THE BUS. Remember that the count is calculated by the number of individual items collected...so a box of 250 diapers counts as 250 items. We are continuing with the Fight Like a Kid fundraiser as well. You can drop off your donation at First Arkansas Bank & Trust and tell them to deposit it into the Fight Like a Kid account by NOON on Friday, October 30th. Last year we were able to grant the wish for one child living with cancer in the Cleburne County community...this year we want to raise enough money to grant the wish for TWO kids...AND WE CAN DO IT! The Battle of the Little Red will be on Friday, October 30 at 7pm at Clinton. #thisyearwewinboth

|PANTHER NATION| On Wednesday, October 14, the Administration at Heber Springs Schools was made aware of a positive COVID-19 case at Heber Springs Schools. The Administration has contacted the Arkansas Department of Health for further guidance, and through contact tracing by the ADH and HSSD, the individuals who were at risk for primary exposure have been contacted. The Administration will continue to closely monitor this situation moving forward. I want to thank the families of those impacted for their patience and understanding as we worked through this situation. Dr. Andy Ashley
