Pi Upsilon Sigma was honored to help start their college experience on a positive note. IAMBK Scholarship Chair, Brother Quentin Gibson told the young men, “this is not a handout, because you earned through your hard work, dedication and perseverance”. Pi Up’s President Gary Bryant, Jr. added “you are now examples of what can be accomplished and leaders for those that follow.

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.”
