Extra, extra! The annual edition of the Green & Gold is out! The Green & Gold is Grier’s newspaper, made possible by a generous donation from Grier alumna. Mr. Sam Salyards of Grier’s English department produces the paper annually. It is comprised of submissions from the Grier student body including many from students in his senior English classes. This year, Mr. Salyards received over twenty-five submissions. Because he could not include everything in the paper, he made an effort to feature Grier’s senior writers.
The newspaper is printed on actual newsprint. The 2018 edition includes articles about the International Food Bazaar, the Sports Banquet, Spring Break in Galapagos, an opinion piece about the Internet, coverage of School Spirit Days and Spamalot, features on Rwanda, dogs, a quiz on endangered species, advice for dorm rooms and school survival, plus a word search! It was the collaboration of about twelve students, one very encouraging leader, and lots of coffee.
