The Voice of Deming High
Who We Are
The Broadcaster has been an integral part of Deming High School dating back to 1917. According to archived issues by Mr. Kenneth Leupold, former DHS teacher and advisor to the Broadcaster, it was a student newspaper that highlighted local activities and events. As we celebrate the 102 year anniversary of the Broadcaster, we will modernize this medium in the digital era as an online magazine. Gone are the days of digging in your backpack for a quarter to check out the latest Did You Know… and Horoscope.
We will continue many of the traditions and articles that date back to the early issues. With DHS history in mind, we will dedicate a section to Wildcat Alumni. Where are they now? What occupations did they pursue? How did Deming High School shape their lives?
We will also strive to stay up to date on the latest school news, events, and trends. Our main goal is to remain a platform for students to exhibit artwork, photography, fashion, music, and comment on current events.
The creative writing and poetry section will pay tribute to the Wildcat publication, The Sunburst. The Sunburst was a journal dedicated entirely to poetry, creative writing, and short stories.
We have great ideas planned for the issues ahead, but we need your input.The Broadcaster is a class but we also welcome contributions from all students. We are a lunchtime and after school program based solely on student interest. We are looking for enthusiastic and committed students to join our team. What articles are you interested in reading or writing?
Whatever your interest, you can be a member of the Broadcaster crew. Listen to the announcements or stop by Mrs. Kriegel’s class (Rm. 908) for information on meetings. You can also email us at Broadcaster@demingps.org.

As children in elementary we’d get asked what we were thankful for, our answers differed from family to toys or video games. However, looking at it from a perspective of a much more mature person, I’d say I’m thankful for my family, friends and much greater things like the free education we receive everyday which is taken for granted at times, the weekends which give us time to relax or hang out with friends, the mistakes made throughout the year and the lessons learned from them, laughter because without it the world would more than likely be a sad place, and the kindness of strangers which is still left in the world. The ways we spend Thanksgiving have evolved; however, the people we spend it with remain the same either being friends or family and sometimes both. As for Christmas, it is probably the most loved Holiday because we either receive gifts, our entire family gathers at one house and we spend time with them or make food and snacks, and overall, I think the best part is watching Christmas movies until midnight on December 24th and receiving hugs when the clock ticks twelve. The good thing is we get two weeks off from school to sleep in, without worrying about homework or projects. However, before that we all need to take midterms, so I hope you all studied and passed your midterm exams!! Have a nice winter break Wildcats.
