Weekly Update Jan. 22

It’s been another great week at Harding Academy!


As members of group 1-B of the Arkansas Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine distribution, 75% of Harding Academy’s faculty and staff chose to be vaccinated with the first round of the Pfizer vaccine on Thursday. (Several others have received the vaccine, just not through us.)  A very special thanks to Searcy Medical Center Pharmacy and Todd and Casey McLeod and Ellen Jones for making it happen during a school day, at our building.

We also want to commend our custodial staff!  We already know they are committed to keeping our school clean and disinfected but they also had 100% participation in the vaccinations.CHANNEL SEVEN NEWS
Be sure and watch Channel 7 News with Steve Sullivan tonight at 6pm and 10pm. They will cover highlights of our Jr. Boys Basketball game from last night. Kam Hoover hit an awesome full court shot to end the 3rd quarter!

Congratulations to Kyle Ferrie! Kyle is ranked 8th in the nation after he attended Kohl’s Professional Kicking Camp at the 2021 Future Stars Invitational. Of course, they just confirmed what we already knew. Kyle is an awesome kicker and we are glad he is a Wildcat. Way to go, Kyle!
