Byrd High is raising funds to pay for a student ran coffee shop and I couldn't love this idea anymore! So far $50,000 has been raised with a goal of $150,000 by the end of the year school officials are hoping to convert an unused area of the library into a coffee shop.

The Coffee Shop will give students a fun safe place to go to study or talk with their friends and being student ran will have other benefits as well. The students that work at the coffee shop will learn what it takes to run your own business from budgets to ordering to marketing. Not to mention after a semester of working at the coffee shop students will be able to apply for a scholarship.

The only downside I can see is teens drinking coffee isn't healthy but let's be for real they're already drinking coffee and energy drinks as it is.
