WHS History
Grist

Grist
The Grist became the school newspaper from the opening year as the picture of the first Grist staff from the 1926 Memory Book shows. The name came from the huge stone wheel used to grind wheat into flour during the milling process. The Grist has presented world events from a student perspective, student issues and activities, humor, technical expertise, and careful writing and editing. A healthy competitive spirit exists between the staff of the Grist and the staff of the Wahian.

During the late 60s and early 70s, an underground newspaper, Wheatrust, was published.
