It might seem surprising that the road in North Las Vegas named for Tom Williams, who created that city, is such a short and unheralded thoroughfare. It may be more surprising that an elementary school is also named for the man who championed having as little government as possible in the new city and keeping out black people.

Brittany Bronson’s résumé is admirable by any standard: She’s a monthly op-ed contributor to The New York Times and an adjunct English instructor at UNLV; she has a master’s degree in creative writing and—like more academics than you might realize—she’s a cocktail server on the Strip. One of these gigs is not like the others, but the combination is what keeps the Las Vegan of four years financially afloat, feeding her literary passion in the classroom and enjoying a more fast-paced restaurant job. The Weekly caught up with Bronson to talk about the state of education and how rude customers react when they find out the women in the aprons are more educated than they are.
