Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Partners with RISE

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Partners with RISE

One of the oldest and most prestigious Black organizations in the country selects The RISE Schools for its Adopt-A-School Program. The Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. will be partnering with RISE to bring its valuable resources to RISE scholars.

 The Adopt-A-School is designed to get Sigma men into the schools in the community, working with educators and principals to assist scholars in improving their knowledge, skills academically and build student literacy. The Brothers of the Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated have volunteered with The RISE Schools on a number of different occasions before. This partnership will include the fraternity’s support of academic initiatives like Reading Days, Debate competitions, and Spelling Bees, as well as non-academic initiatives such as mentoring, service projects, and other support services” said Christian Harden, principal of RISE Prep, who is also a Sigma himself. RISE Executive Director Davion Lewis also shared his enthusiasm saying, “We are looking forward to formally working with Phi Beta Sigma. As you know the late Civil Rights Icon, Congressman John Lewis, who was also a Sigma man and a great friend of RISE, also represented this community, so it’s somewhat of a full circle moment.”

Founded by Alumni members of the Zeta Chapter of the Fraternity in 1924, the Brothers of Lambda Sigma Chapter are committed to excellence and service to humanity, accomplished by reaffirming and maintaining our strong commitment to the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, Service, and Fellowship. The chapter has produced FIVE International Presidents, dozens of other officers on the International, Regional and State levels, and ten members of the Distinguished Service Chapter (the Fraternity’s Highest Honor). We are extremely excited to begin this formal partnership and looking forward to all of the great things our scholars will benefit from.
