The Local Roar


The Local Roar is Clarksdale High School’s first online student newspaper. Our staff works to bring you the latest CHS news updates and exclusive student content!

The website is updated several times a week and includes a link to our youtube channel, which includes the student broadcast network, Clarksdale Wildcat News 5 (CWN5). The students of the journalism elective class write the content, design the pages, and produce the broadcasts for the site.

News stories reflect the views of the majority of the editorial board, comprised of the editor-in-chief, business manager, page editors, and advisers. Columns and reviews with a byline reflect the views of the writer, not necessarily those of The Local Roar staff.

Respectful comments on stories are encouraged on our social media accounts.

Inquiries regarding advertising in the online editions should be directed to Javier McDonald ([email protected]), the business manager.

Clarksdale High School is located at 1101 Wildcat Dr., Clarksdale, Mississippi 38614. We can be reached through phone and email, detailed below:
