The History of Epsilon Xi Sigma Chapter

Several members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity who were in the Chattanooga area during the late sixties knew each other through the Chattanooga School System in which they taught school. A few brothers envisioned forming a local chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity so they invited others to participate in organizing a local chapter of the Fraternity. Through these efforts, Epsilon Xi Sigma Chapter was chartered September 5, 1972. The Charter Members were Bro. Leonard E. Wellington ( first chapter president ), Bro. Jake Strickland, Bro. Eddy L. Echols Sr., Bro. Robert H. Stewart, Bro. Rev. Herman H. Battle, Bro. Raymond Taylor and Bro. Henderson F. Massey. The local chapter was charted as Epsilon Xi Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and also, became a member of the Southeastern Region of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
