Mackenzie's Story

Our chapter is excited to support local literacy efforts through The Literacy Fund at Pi Beta Phi Foundation! When the Backside Learning Center received a Local Impact Grant, we were overwhelmed and grateful.

Our chapter helps the employees of Churchill Downs develop reading skills so they may work toward their GED diplomas.

This grant will allow the center, and the Kentucky Alpha chapter, to continue the fight against illiteracy.
