Fraternity members become brothers forever.
This fact was proven once again when the Alpha Delta Sigma Chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity in Kansas City came to Neosho on Sunday. Five fraternity brothers were here to lend a hand to the HistoriCorps members working on the 1872 Neosho Colored School.
 Four were new members of the group and were here as part of their initiation into the fraternity. Two members had joined just eight days before, on June 18.
The fifth member, Eric Wells, has been with Phi Beta for several years and explained that the motto of the fraternity is "Culture for service, service for humanity." Wells also proclaimed that Phi Beta Sigma is "The greatest fraternity."
Anyone who studies George Washington Carver's life realizes that this fraternity's motto fit him perfectly. He did everything for the betterment of man. Probably because the fraternity's motto echoed Carvers's beliefs, he became a faculty member of the fraternity when he was a professor at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.
Carver became a member before 1930, and now, 85 years later, his fellow fraternity brothers are honoring him by working on the first school he attended.
These members of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity became aware of the current project when visiting the George Washington Carver Monument a few weeks ago. They thought helping would be a good project for them.
All four of the new members who worked in Neosho are college graduates having studied at Florida A&A, Webster College and National American College in Kansas City.
While here, the Phi Beta Sigma members helped put on the new cedar siding that is being added to this historic school.
Until this time, other projects that the Kansas City Phi Beta Sigma members have worked on were in the Kansas City area. This is the first time they have gone out of town, and they promised to return next year when the 1872 Neosho Colored School is worked on again.
Because they drove so far and worked so hard in the hot sun, Keith Jones, Deandre Tuggle, Paul Anderson, Arthur Whittaker, and Eric Wells of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity are this week's good neighbors.
