Erin Grier, Archives Editor

Erin Grier is a senior and the Archives Editor on staff at The Chant. Erin joined the newspaper as a sophomore. It helped her come out of her shell, and she quickly developed an appreciation for the writing process and the camaraderie on staff. Her favorite subjects in school are history and literature, and she participates in Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl and is apart of the National Honors Society. When she is not in school, Erin enjoys reading (it has been said that she “eats” books), watching bad 80’s and 90’s movies, writing, shoe shopping, and spending time with her friends. When she graduates, she wants to go to college and major in creative writing with a minor in journalism. She hopes to write novels—as well as TV shows and movies—someday. In her last year on staff, Erin hopes to better others’ writing (and her own) as an editor and play a part in making The Chant the best newspaper it can be.
