Phi Beta Sigma awards scholarships

From The St. Louis American

During its annual Scholarship Brunch the Education Committee of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc awarded $ 3,500 in scholarships to deserving high school seniors.

Recipients were De’Von Washington, Christian Brothers College High School; Jourdon Morgan III, Hazelwood East High School; Chris Johnson, Lafayette High School; and Kendrick Strong II, Mel Carnahan High School.

Organizers said, “We continued our philanthropic legacy by upholding our motto, ‘Culture for Service, and Service for Humanity.’”

Mr. Anthony McDonald, of the Risen Foundation, allowed all in attendance a preview of literary excerpts from books penned by several of his students. The students spoke from the heart and gave a riveting display of all their hard work.

The scholarship program continued with guest speaker, Bro. Eugene Simpson. Bro. Simpson, a father, brother, an educator, brought his entire repertoire and provided an exhilarating call to ACTION.

Organizers said, “We look forward to a bigger and better scholarship brunch in 2012! Please join us and see what the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity are all about.”
