Minnesota Sigmas St. Paul, MN
Since 1977 Minnesota Sigmas have been instrumental in efforts to positively affect the state of Minnesota and Twin Cities community. Having been recognized for coordinating major events this fraternity prides itself in providing service. Well known projects include: “Hoops for Haiti” which raised hundreds of dollars and pounds of food to be donated to the disaster relief efforts in Haiti, and “Sleep Out for the Homeless” featured on WCCO Channel 4 News which collected dozens of blankets and food for homeless people in Minnesota. With projects such as these and an unyielding persistence our cause speeds on its way with the greatest expedience and efficiency
History of MN Chapters of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated:
Local Chapters include: Zeta Nu Sigma Graduate/Professional Chapter, Pi Eta University of Minnesota Chapter, Gamma Alpha Omicron Winona State University Chapter.
In 1977 a brother by the name of Edward Robertson noted a need for a chapter here in the Twin Cities to proliferate our great fraternity’s philosophies. After deep consideration he submitted a proposal to another brother in town, Phil Walker. Phil accepted the proposal with interest. Five other fraternity brothers began to meet regularly. This resulting chapter became known as Zeta Nu Sigma.
The Twin Cities received its official charter for the “Zeta Nu Sigma” chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated on September 27th, 1977. The founders of this chapter are documented on record as Edward Robertson, Phil Walker, Amos Haynes, Abe McCarty, Henry Person, Robert Lewis, and Hayward McKerson.
