The Delta Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. held a scholarship awards presentation in honor of Distinguish Service Chapter member Darryl A. Prince, Sr. The Distinguished Service Chapter is the highest honor bestowed on a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. With the practice of social distancing, the presentation was held in the Anderson Conference Center parking lot on the campus of Winston-Salem State University.  

Scholarship is one of the three guiding principles of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. The opportunity to enhance one’s future through educational opportunities is a requirement of all chapters. The scholarship component is designed to help Phi Beta Sigma chapters grow its impact in the area of assisting (preferably) African American men to cover the cost of education at both the high school and college levels through the awarding of scholarships at both levels. This year the chapter awarded three scholarships to the following students:

*Omarion T. Bitting, a graduate of Parkland High School, will be attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill where he will major in Biology. His career objective is to graduate from medical school and to become a doctor so that he can have a positive impact on the lives of others in his community.  

*Maurice C. Cager, a graduate of Mount Tabor High School, will be attending North Carolina A&T State University where he will major in Sports Management. His future goal is to work for a professional sports team.  

*Alim J. Turner, a graduate of Parkland High School, will be attending the University of North Carolina in Charlotte where he will major in business marketing. His future plans are to obtain an MBA and become a marketing research analyst.  

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students. The Founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity’s motto, “Culture for Service and Service for Humanity.”
