The Great Scott Herald had completed its 10th year as a quarterly newsletter. After the test pilot within the Community Chronicles in 2015, the Herald became under its umbrella in Spring! It now be seen within the Community Chronicles 40-page spread with a reliable input from the city and stories that highlight Scott happenings and interests among those from Arnaudville, Duson, Carencro, Grand Coteau, North Lafayette and Sunset! Community Chronicles has a distribution of 6000 and online readership of 10000. Every month, the Chronicles features a human interest story about someone within the readership area. We think the Scott Herald partnership made sense and opened opportunity and broadened the readership for the community and local businesses. The best place for Scott news is where Positive News sets the tone. Enjoy!
The first issue of The Great Scott Herald was published in August 2004. It was an answer to then-Councilman Purvis Morrison’s suggestion that the city have a communication that would concentrate on events and activities within the city. The first issue was a slender six-page publication that grew to a 14-page production before it morphed into a segment of the Chronicles. Regular columns included the input from the city’s mayor “From City Hall” and the “Chiefs’ Dispatch.” It also included a quarterly calendar from its first issue and school blackboard by the last year. The newsletter was always produced by Hulco Printing and layout was always coordinated with one of their graphic designers. Melody Gilcrease was especially helpful in the smooth coordination between producing the Herald and getting it published, while members of the LLC board under which the newsletter was first established, Purvis Morrison and Paul Murphy Boudreaux, helped with continuing the operations.
Thank you all for a successful product that many enjoy and liked to share. As you see, it continues to connect with people in Scott and the surrounding communities.
