Through it all the brothers have managed to bring to the Afro centric community a fraternity that is about the unrelenting determination to succeed!!!!!
In 1999 Adrian White, LeJohn Purkett, William Wynn, and Gary Whitley decided to make some changes in their local community brotherhood organization. Originally named Sigma Chi, founded by seven young boys (four of which are already named), Sigma Chi was a local brotherhood to help keep at-risk young men out of trouble in the town of Plymouth, North Carolina.
However, as the years past, and the brothers of Sigma Chi wanted to make some serious changes to their fraternity, everybody was not in agreement with the decision to make the changes. Therefore, with Adrian White, LeJohn Purkett, William Wynn and Gary Whitley as the surviving founders, would take on the responsibility of the Fraternity under the Advisorship of Mr. Gregory Boston (1st Advisory of Nu Gamma Psi Fraternity, Inc.). The four Founders would call a meeting to discuss the colors, mascot, motto's, shield, and name of their fraternity, That name was NU GAMMA PSI. Nu Gamma Psi Fraternity is a fraternity based on the Godly principles of Love, Community Service, Brotherhood, Leadership, and Courage. It is currently in the midst of growing to become one of the greatest African-American, fraternal organizations.
