The football team is set to kickoff what we hope to be an annual fundraiser for the football program.  While this is an important fundraiser for us, the ultimate desire is to promote school community and spirit using our Wildcat Logo and colors along with a day to appreciate what we have here at Harding Academy. We would love for every child, PreK-12th grade, along with every employee, parent, grandparent, fan and friend at HA to wear the official Wildcat Pride T-shirt on April 18th, representing not just the football team, but our school and the pride we take in being Red and White Wildcats! The following events are planned for the inaugural Wildcat Pride Day. Each of these events allows everyone to be involved in this fun and exciting day. 


Wildcat Pride T-Shirts will be for sale through the following link:   

T-shirts will be $10.00. They will go on sale March 18th and run through March 29th.  An email will be sent to everyone who purchases a shirt regarding when and where T-shirts may be picked up.  

BBQ Plate Lunches

Parents and coaches will be serving Whistle Stop BBQ plates at lunch on Thursday, April 18th from 10am-2pm.  We will serve dinner from 4:30-6pm during the baseball game.  We will deliver orders of 10 or more to any family or business.  All orders of less than 10 can be picked up at the field house. Eat with us in front of the field house, if you would like.  Tickets are $10.00 and will be sold in advance of the event. (Our plan is to make lunches available to students that day if they choose to buy a plate; they MUST purchase in advance.)  There will be two ways to buy tickets.  They may be bought online at or from a SR HIGH football player.  We invite your business or organization to treat your whole group by emailing Coach Bronson Smith at  Links to purchase online will be sent out in an email closer to time.  Sales for BBQ will begin Monday, April 1st and go through Friday, April 12th. 

Day of Donation

We are providing an opportunity for anyone who would like to donate on April 18th to be able to do so at

Again, it is our goal for each person to play a part in Wildcat Pride Day!  We want this day to be about PRIDE for Harding Academy and proudly represent the RED AND WHITE.  Remember, this event is in conjunction with our Baseball Military Appreciation Game on Thursday, April 18th.  Wear your Wildcat Pride T-shirt, get your BBQ, and spend the day fellowshipping with other Wildcats. See the attached flyer for additional details.  I also would call your attention to our sponsors.  They are playing a vital part in making this day successful.
