During the week of February 14 – February 18, 2022, Mr. Jonathan S.E. Perkins of The Fountain City Slam conducted a Poetry/Spoken Word Residency at Greenville High School. He visited Ms. Ferguson’s 9th Grade Literature classes each day of the week and gave lessons in writing and performing poetry. On Friday, the students shared their poetry, on a volunteer basis, in front of their peers during a student-led Poetry Slam Session. They were also treated to performances by Ms. CeeCee, a recent graduate of Clark Atlanta University, Spoken Word Artist, and member of The Fountain City Slam.
