There could be no greater privilege than to serve as Co-Chairs of the Centennial Celebration – a once-in-a-lifetime affirmation of the purpose and proud legacy of our beloved Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. We are grateful to then President Paul Griffin, the General Board and Conclave for their confidence in charging us with this important undertaking.
The story of Sigma is the union of spirit and commitment to serve, with a firm foundation of learning and genuine interest in the wellbeing of others. This is crystalized in our motto: Culture for Service and Service for Humanity. We undertake to celebrate the long line of Sigma men who held true to our founding principles of Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service and who for one Century rendered creditable service to improve conditions and opportunities for our fellowman in all communities.
May we do honor in some small measure to the dedication of those who went before us. Through our tributes we celebrate the achievements. We resolve to hold our standards high. We rededicate ourselves for a brand new Century, with the same fervor first shown by three collegiates, our revered Founders A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse and Charles I. Brown, at Howard University, in 1914.
May our pride keep showing for generations to come. We look forward with great excitement to our families and Sisters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority joining us in this Grand Celebration. Onward Together to a magnificent Jubilee!
Fraternally and sincerely,
27th & 29th International President
28th International President
30th International President
