After graduation Sam went to Wright State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. Recently Sam got married and lives in the greater Dayton area with her husband and two dogs. She is a Preschool Intervention Specialist for Hamilton City Schools and is currently pursuing her masters degree in Special Education with the goal of being an adjunct professor at a local college.

What is your favorite memory or staff member from your time at WHS?
“My favorite class/memories were in Mrs. Julie Knoblauch's AP English class. She was one of my favorite teachers, as well Kim Harris. Both inspired me to pursue the field of education and encouraged my love for reading and how to spread that love to my future students.”

What small piece of advice would you give to current WHS students?
“There is ALWAYS more to life after high school! Don't be afraid to find yourself wherever you go!”
