On April 14th, Erin Herchock signed a letter of intent with Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas where she will be a member of the Lady Bison Track Team.
Erin has been a standout athlete for Dewey and has excelled as a 3 year starter on the basketball team and a two event state champion in track during both her sophomore and junior years. Erin was a member of the inaugural varsity cross country team and has served as a trainer for the varsity football team all four years of high school. She was also the recipient of several area, conference, and regional honors including Will Rogers and Big 8 All-Conference selections in basketball and Tulsa World All-Metro Track and Field Team (twice).
As impressive as her athletic accomplishments are, Harding University has signed someone whose greatest impact will probably be off the track. Erin has excelled in her academics and in her non-athletic extracurricular activities. She is in the top 10% of her class, is a National Honor Society member, and has maintained a 3.7 GPA. She has been class vice-president four consecutive years, was a four year member and senior editor of the Yearbook Committee, and was selected as a High School Student of the Month at least once during each year of high school.
We congratulate Harding University on acquiring such an outstanding student for next year and we wish Erin all the best as she continues both her athletic and academic careers.
The Dewey Board of Education is currently seeking applications for Superintendent.

Over the recent break, Dewey Public Schools transitioned the accounting software we use in the cafeteria. Part of that transition involved the EZ School Pay online account payment. The change in cafeteria software requires that parents re-link the student accounts. This is done by selecting ADD STUDENT and entering the students LAST NAME and 4 digit numeric student ID. Do not attempt to link students using BIRTHDATE as that information is not yet loaded. Additionally, if your first attempt is not successful, please logout and back on before attempting again. Once the students have been relinked you may notice what appears to be duplicate students listed in RED. These can be left or deleted at your preference. These are NOT duplicate cafeteria accounts accounts, and they have no effect on your students cafeteria account or balance. After re-linking the student accounts, all of your existing preferences will remain in effect, and you can make payments, check balances, and perform other account actions as normal. We apologize for any difficulty and thank you for your patience and understanding as we finish this transition.
