SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE

The Delta Sigma chapter of the Sigma Beta Club held an induction ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 26 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 in Winston-Salem.

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.”

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 the black communities and recognized the important role that Sigma men could play in the lives of our youth.

The ceremony marks the fourth induction class into the Sigma Beta Club since it was re-chartered on Oct. 12, 2012.  Christian K. Greene (fifth-grader at Forsyth Academy), Carlton J. McCoy (sixth-grader at Northwest Middle), Craig M. McGhee III (third-grader at Speas Elementary) and Aaron J. Richardson Jr.(third-grader at Rural Hall Elementary) are the newly inducted members.

The Sigma Beta Clubs’ four major principles of focus are on culture, athletics, social and educational needs.

The Sigma Beta Club offers a unique opportunity to develop values, leadership skills and social/cultural awareness in 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 Betas took on an active role in the program. The welcome was given by John A. Jackson III, and Nigel J. McDaniel-Moore gave the invocation. Evan C. Simmons read the purpose and Nasir I. McDaniel-Moore gave the closing remarks.

Phi Beta Sigma members Willie L. Conner Jr., Daniel A. Crudup, Sean R. Hawkins Sr., John A. Jackson II and Antonio D. McCoy make up the Sigma Beta Club Advisory Committee.
