Greetings from the National President:
Welcome to our website. We encourage you to explore and learn about Beta Pi Sigma Sorority, Inc.
Our Founders Sarah P. Reynolds and Thelma L. Wallace shared a dream in 1945, to establish a sorority to help the youth in our communities, to reach out to the community to give service where needed, and to form a sisterhood of business and professional women. Our national theme is, “Youth Takes Priority.”
Since 1945, Beta Pi Sigma Sorority, Inc. has given scholarships to deserving high school and continuing education students for college. Each chapter is mandated to give one scholarship a year. Beta Pi Sigma Sorority, Inc. also gives three National Scholarships, the Lucille Ailstock – based on scholastic achievement and financial need, the Reynolds-Wallace Founders Award – based on leadership ability and financial need and the Helen Gaines/Cleatter Saul Memorial Award – based on scholastic achievement and financial need. All scholarships must be applied for through a local chapter. Every year Beta Pi Sigma Sorority, Inc. donates to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and to a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).
Our organization has 19 active chapters with members located in several states. Many of our members are educators and civic leaders in their communities. We remain committed to our youth, sisterhood, education and community service.
Please continue to visit our website. We will be sharing upcoming news about our sorority’s functions and all chapter activities.
