Sam is an outdoorsman at heart. He was a landscaper for several years and liked designing solutions for problems with people’s property but figured out he didn’t enjoy the long hours and decided to go back to school. And, now he’s a valued part of our Civil Engineering department where he enjoys the people and the low-key atmosphere (but is still inspired to work hard). Though, he says if he could have another career it would be as a farmer on a small farm with diverse crops and livestock.
Sam’s favorite quote is the Greek Proverb, “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”
