Team Intern: Sam Waller
Sammy is going into his third year at the University of Akron, studying Business with a minor in Public Relations. He’s pursuing this degree in hopes to one day be his own boss, and own a restaurant somewhere out west, preferably Denver or Salt Lake City. He’s also a huge fan of photography, weight lifting, and sports, playing football, lacrosse, and throwing shot put and discus.
Over his years being involved with scouts, Sam has been able to go to Colorado and climb Mount Antero, see Pikes Peak and zipline over canyons; go to New Mexico on a 12-day trek in bear country and try actual rock climbing, metal working, and many other activities; and has white water rafted in the New River Gorge in West Virginia. The only reason Sammy wants to move out west is to have the beautiful view of the mountains in his backyard, and have the ability to go climb a mountain any day he wishes.
Sam believes having the business skills to network, and read financial records properly is imperative to strive and be successful. He thinks this internship will better help him understand the inner workings of a business, which will be beneficial later down the road.
