Bethune-Cookman University Students Visited Bentley Elementary School to Participate in a Black History Program and Share the History of the National Pan-Hellenic Council

Recently, several student representatives from The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) participated in a Black history month program at Bentley Elementary. Students from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity organizations educated students on the historic roles of Black Greek letter organizations, shared notable members of the divine nine groups, and demonstrated step routines for the youth. “The students are always excited when colleges, especially sororities and fraternities come to visit and show what their organizations represent,” said Cynthia Jones, Bentley Elementary School Administrator. “It’s more than rewarding to all of us, the faculty, staff and students that we get to have students from my alma mater showcasing their talents to our youth,” she added.
