Meet Sam Singh
Sam’s story is one of civic engagement. Sam’s parents immigrated to Michigan from India in the 1960s for a better life and an opportunity for the American Dream. From an early age, Sam’s parents taught him the value of giving back to the country that has given them so much. Sam took those lessons to heart, knowing how hard his parents worked to provide a good life for him and his brother. Over the past twenty five years, Sam has made a career of supporting the mid-Michigan area through his work with philanthropy, public service and nonprofit board service.
“Education has always been a family value since my parents emigrated from India to seek the American dream. The opportunity for my father to attend college in America and his thirty years of work for Ford Motor Company has reinforced my personal commitment to give back to the country and state that made it possible for our family to succeed.” – Sam Singh
