The Roar got its name in the spring of 2005 when future WHS sophomores suggested names for the newspaper. In August 2005, Journalism I students at WHS confirmed the popular selection and began learning newspaper basics: information gathering, interviewing, reporting, editing, designing, and shooting photos. The first issue was published in March 2006. In its second year, WHS journalism students have developed The Roar into an 8-page monthly paper, distributed free of charge to all students on campus. Students determine content and do all planning, reporting, and designing.
