The Blue and White is vibrant in the hearts of Phi Beta Sigma men. Their history is embedded in the structure of colleges and universities across the world.

Phi Beta Sigma held its 2017 Conclave with thousands in attendance at the Marriott Renaissance Center in Detroit. Phi Beta Sigma was established on January 9, 1914 at Howard University, founded by three men: Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown — with a vision of brotherhood, scholarship, and service while taking inclusive practices to serving the community as opposed to having an exclusive perspective.

The men of Phi Beta Sigma are popularly known as “Sigmas.” Sigmas are essential in being first to establish alumni chapters — there are chapters outside of the U.S., including in Africa, along with Phi Beta Sigma National Foundation, Phi Beta Sigma Federal Credit Union, and The Sigma Beta Club Foundation. They also assisted with establishing their sister organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority.

The Phi Beta Sigma 33rd Western Regional Director is Las Vegas’ own Mark A. Armstrong. He obtained the position in June 2016. Mark wears his blue and white proudly and works diligently in reaching the organization’s goals for service to the community. Mark is currently a Director at Caesar’s Entertainment, Inc. He is very instrumental in the community and makes a positive difference by living the Sigma motto: “Culture for Service and Service for Humanity.”
