On Friday, July 17, the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. hosted a reception celebrating the induction of the fraternity’s newest members into the Distinguished Service Chapter.

Darryl A. Prince Sr. (DSC #177) of Winston-Salem became one of six new inductees.

The reception was held at the Little Rock Marriott hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas, during the fraternity’s International Conclave.

Established at the 1929 Conclave, the Distinguished Service Chapter is the highest honor bestowed on a member that has been active in the Fraternity for at least 10 years and who has distinguished himself with outstanding contributions and extraordinary service to the Fraternity and/or in his respective communities.

Membership in the Distinguished Service Chapter must be recommended and approved by the awardees’ chapter, region and by the General Board of the Fraternity before being voting upon at the International Conclave.

Former Phi Beta Sigma International President Dr. Parlett L. Moore described the Distinguish Service Chapter as “Sigma’s Hall of Fame.”

He said, “Our illustrious Brothers who have received this highest honor that Phi Beta Sigma bestows upon its members have contributed a full measure of service for the enrichment of our culture. They have made praise-worthy contributions to the cause of Sigma and to the cause of humanity.”

Prince matriculated through Shaw University in Raleigh, where he was a member of the Alpha Chi National Honor Society.

While at Shaw he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion and Psychological History.

Prince was initiated into the Delta Sigma Chapter on March 3, 1990, and since has been a beacon in the community.

He has served faithfully and fraternally for more than 25 years, upholding the high ideals and noble principles of our beloved Fraternity.

Prince provided extraordinary service to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity by serving in the following capacities: International General Board member, Southeastern Regional Director, Southeastern Regional Treasurer, Adviser to the Southeastern Regional Director, State Director of North Carolina, N.C. Vice State Director, N.C. Director of Social Action, N.C. Membership Intake Committee Aerial Coordinator and president of the Delta Sigma Alumni Chapter.

As a member of the Delta Sigma Alumni Chapter, he is the current Parliamentarian and serves on the Sigma Beta Club Advisory Committee.

In recognition of Brother Prince’s contribution to the Delta Sigma Chapter in 2010, the annual fraternity gala was renamed to the Darryl A. Prince Sr. Sigma Heritage Awards Gala.

Prince is married to Soror Janice M. Prince, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.

He has two children Darryl Jr. and Christy.

They are members of Emmanuel Baptist Church.

He continues to participate in many community activities including the Board of Directors of Teen Life Community Action Group, United Way of Forsyth County, American Red Cross of Forsyth County, Winston-Salem Foundation, RJR Diversity Group, Shaw University Alumni Chairman, Emmanuel Baptist Church Executive Board and the N.C. Education Foundation for Public School Children.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated founded in 1920 with the assistance of Phi Beta Sigma, is the sister organization of the Fraternity.

The Delta Sigma Chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was chartered on Dec. 10, 1923.
