The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi (PKP)—the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines—recently presented John Blake, Austin Peay State University associate professor of engineering technology, with a 2014 Literacy Grant. Blake, president of APSU’s PKP chapter, is one of 14 recipients nationwide to receive the award.

The $2,350 grant will be used to support the Candy for the Mind program that takes place during APSU’s annual G.H.O.S.T. (Great Halloween Options for Safe Trick-or-Treating) event. Hosted by the APSU PKP chapter, Candy for the Mind gives more than 2,000 books to trick-or-treaters as an alternative to candy during the popular event.

The Literacy Grant program was initiated in 2003 to provide funding to PKP chapters and active members for ongoing projects or new initiatives that reinforce part of the Society’s mission “to engage the community of scholars in service to others.” Drawing from a multi-disciplinary Society of students and scholars from large and small institutions, applicants are encouraged to consider literacy projects that have creative relevance to their disciplines and to the needs of their communities.
