Our Community

The town of Armorel was founded in 1899 by lumber magnate and president of Lee Wilson and Company, R. E. L. Wilson as one of his many company holdings. Wilson was an eclectic and colorful figure with vast land holdings in the Delta area after the Civil War. The town's name was formed from the abbreviations of Arkansas and Missouri, along with the first three initials of it's founder, Wilson. Armorel is roughly 5 miles outside of the city of Blytheville.

Blytheville, established as lumber mill town in the 1880s, has also served as a center for the cotton-growing industry, a Strategic Air Command (SAC) airbase and a gateway city for the Natural State. The airbase was phased out years ago, but Blytheville has emerged as a steel production center and agri-business is strong.

Armorel/Blytheville has many historical and fun attractions to offer for locals and visitors. Don't miss out on the opportunity to get a glimpse of the mighty Mississippi River as well.

"I started my teaching career at Armorel 5 years ago. From the beginning, I have thought Armorel as a second home. We have a close-knit faculty and staff who are like family, we have wonderful kids who work hard and are eager to learn, and we have great support from parents, community members, and local businesses. Armorel is a great place to be!"

I love being part of the Tiger Family! This is my seventh year at Armorel. I love that our small district allows us to watch our little tiger cubs as they grow and cross the street to become Tigers! The stakeholder support we receive, from parents to community members, is overwhelming. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be a member of the Armorel School District.
