Sam is our featured alum this month because of his involvement in and commitment to his community, as well as to his alma mater. Sam has become a successful businessman, owning and operating Sam Baker Insurance, Titan Insurance and Liberty Tax Services. He has the Sam Baker “weenie wagon” that he lets numerous groups and community organizations use for fundraising events. Last month he even let the Princeton Senior High School Dance Team use his parking lot for a VIP parking fundraiser at a local football game. Sam is a community partner with Mercer County Opportunity Industries and has already committed to support the Concord University Foundation’s Inaugural Beckley Dinner this November. Sam is also leading the charge in establishing a Concord University alumni chapter in the Charlotte, NC area and hosted the university’s first event for alumni in the area earlier this year. Thanks Sam for all you do for your community and for Concord!
