Tool Room Coordinator, Cedar Valley College 

After retiring from General Motors’ maintenance division, Sam came to work as a tool room coordinator for the Engine Technology program. He has been with Cedar Valley for more than 10 years and enjoys every part of his job. He helps students find the right tools and materials needed to work on motorcycles, boats and small engines.  

He works with evening class adjunct professors and is our “go to” guy when it comes to finding something in the shop. Sam says the best part of his job is “watching students practice what they’ve learned.” Sam and his son raced jet skis and built and maintained boats for years.
