I take great pleasure in bringing you greetings on behalf of the members of the Iota Mu Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated. Our Fraternity was founded in 1914 on the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service. Iota Mu Sigma continues to carry out that legacy and charge over 100 years later in Arlington, TX and surrounding areas.
Like our founders, we take an inclusive approach when serving our community opposed to having one apart from the community. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the community by executing our national programs: Bigger and Better Business, Education, Social Action and the Sigma Beta Club, our youth auxiliary group for young males. Additionally, not only do we serve our community through our programs but we exemplify Brotherhood in everything that we do. We constantly remind each other that we are our Brother’s Keeper and treat each Brother with respect in all efforts the chapter performs.
To our visitors, we welcome you to learn more about Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated and how the Iota Mu Sigma chapter is serving humanity. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
