Hear from the national presidents of Greek fraternities and sororities who are global change agents. We will also hear from CEOs of social enterprise businesses who are changing communities and college educators who are taking their students out of the classroom and into surrounding neighborhoods for real world life lessons and to serve others.
On Saturday, June 15, 2013, join us to hear from the International President of Phi Beta Sigma, the Honorable Jimmy Hammock. Mr. Hammock will share the rich history of the soon to be a century old fraternity and how the fraternity focuses on brotherhood, scholarship, and service . Listen as he reflects on his personal stories as a Sigma Man and his tenure at the helm of the Phi Beta Sigma. He will discuss his recent trip to Africa and how "the trip was a long time coming but right on time".
Africa is not the only trip Mr. Hammock discusses. Hear about his recent trip to Mississippi to receive Alcorn State University's Honorarii Alcornite Societatis Award, his thoughts on Alcorn State University leadership, the people the university attracts to campus, and his conversation with my mother, Dr. Stringer. He also talks about President Clinton's acceptance into Phi Beta Sigma and his commencement remarks at Howard University where he emphasized service to others, a cornerstone of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. Continuing on our "HBCU radio tour", we both discuss Mr. Sylvester Davis, Tennessee State University's Hall of Famer, whose numerous acts of kindness have impacted countless lives around the nation. ("Mr. Sylvester" as I called him publicly holds a special place in the lives of the Holmes Family.) Listen as Mr. Hammock share "Sly"s legacy with Phi Beta Sigma, his strong belief in mentoring, and how he lead in the fraternity by serving others first.
We did not leave out the numerous initiatives that have become synonymous with Sigma Men and giving back to the community; American Cancer Society, Living Well Brother To Brother, March of Dimes, Project Seed, Project Vote, Anti Hazing, and Sigma Wellness.
