The Delta Sigma chapter of the Sigma Beta Club (a youth affiliate of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity) held an induction ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 11, in front of an audience of 50 family, friends, Sigma Beta Club members, and brothers of Phi Beta Sigma. The ceremony was held at Grace Fellowship Church on Brownsboro Road.

Under the direction of Dr. Parlette L. Moore, the Sigma Beta Club was founded in 1950. Brother Moore (20th International President) was concerned about the changing needs in our communities and recognized the important role that Sigma men could play in the lives of our youth.

The ceremony marks the fifth induction class into the Sigma Beta Club since it was re-chartered on October 12, 2012.  Jordan N. Hinson (5th grader at Old Richmond Elementary), Zacarian J. Hinson (7th grader at Northwest Middle), Javion M. Holt (7th grader at Jefferson Middle), Marlon J. Holt Jr. (10th grader at Mt. Tabor High) and Mikal O. Truesdale (6th grader at Paisley Middle) were the newly inducted members.

The Sigma Beta Club’s four major principles of focus are: Culture, Athletics, Social, and Educational needs.  The Sigma Beta Club offers a unique opportunity to develop values, leadership skills and social/cultural awareness in our youth during their developmental years. Sigma Beta Club programs are geared to meet the needs of its members, but at the same time provide them with a well-rounded outlook that is needed to cope with today’s society.  Phi Beta Sigma is confident that investing in our youth today will produce the effective leaders of tomorrow.

Current Sigma Beta Club officers took on an active role in the program. The Welcome was given by Alim J. Turner, president, and Adrian L. Wilkerson Jr., chaplain, gave the Invocation. John A. Jackson III, vice president, read the organization Purpose.

The Sigma Beta Club Advisory Committee is comprised of Phi Beta Sigma members Willie L. Conner Jr., Daniel A. Crudup, Stuart D. Eaton, Sean R. Hawkins Sr., John A. Jackson II, and Antonio D. McCoy.

The Delta Sigma chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is the sponsoring chapter for the local Sigma Beta Club, a youth auxiliary of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity for males ages 8-18. The club’s motto is, “Next Generation of Leaders Accepting the Responsibility and Loving the Challenge.”
