The Future Business Leaders of America teamed up with the Special Education program to provide students their caffeine fix.

“Be fresh, be cool.” said Mrs. Nichols, business teacher.

This is the motto that the Warrior Grind stands by. Students in FBLA have been serving coffee in the mornings to raise money for life skill student scholarships and for the FBLA.

“Only $1.50 a cup, and it comes with a mint to freshen breath!” said Nichols.

The Warrior Grind is run by students. The coffee comes from the Roasterie, so it also supports Kansas City businesses.

“Every morning, we make and serve coffee. We also do inventory.” said Serena Maxfield, senior.

The Special Education Program joined Nichols and FBLA.

“On our end, we help clean, (and) kind of put up the area when they are done serving,” said Amanda McCluskey, special education teacher. “We eventually want to get into the inventory as they are still trying to get off the ground.”

The business students in charge of the Warrior Grind are hoping for business to continue and grow.

“We plan to continue it for the rest of the year and years to come,” said Jake Fisher and Riley Tenpenny, sophomores.
