UNLV's chapter of Phi Kappa Phi landed a $2,500 literacy grant from the national honor society to create the Rebel Reading Room at Dean Petersen Professional Development School. The vision of school librarian James Bowen, the Rebel Reading Room rewards for hard-working students who exhibit the school's "Pillar of Character" traits: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, citizenship, fairness, and caring. Members of the Rebel Reading Room receive their own book, enjoy stories read aloud by Phi Kappa Phi student volunteers, and have an "environmentally 'poppin' space they can explore, read, dream, wonder, and fall in love with learning and literature," says Bowen. The UNLV Phi Kappa Phi members wrote the grant and helped paint, decorate, and supply the room.
