When Friday arrives, sometimes students just need to kick back and relax. Grier's Coffee Barn is a great place to do just that. While the Coffee Barn has regular hours, Grier Activities Director Holly Carper makes special arrangments for it to stay open extended hours for special evenings, such as this fall evening of poetry readings lead by amteur poet Mr. James Pingry, who teaches Photography and Yearbook at Grier. Students joined Mr. Pingry to listen to both his original poetry and great selected poems. Between sips of warm chai lattes, the students shared their own poetry selection with the initmate group.
