Recent Activity Bio
Sam owns SLC Investment Services and has been providing financial consulting services in Galveston County for 21 years. In 2015 he was named Galveston County’s Citizen of the Year for his work in Galveston County and the preservation community on the local, state and national levels.

Sam graduated from Texas A&M University in 1994 and has been a lifelong resident of Galveston County. He is married to his wife Doris. They have four children, two daughters and two sons. He is an Associate Minister at Greater St. Matthews Baptist church under the leadership of Dr. William L. Randall Jr., Senior Pastor.

Sam currently serves as an advisor with the National Trust for Historic Preservation representing Texas. He is actively involved in the national campaign to #TellTheFullStory by expanding the narrative and telling the truth about American history. He was very active in the effort to recognize the Sugar Land 95 that were discovered in Fort Bend County in 2018 and how convict leasing was used to re-enslave individuals on the same plantation sites that they or their ancestors had been freed from at the end of the Civil War.

Sam is also working in Brazoria County with the Texas Historical Commission at the Levi Jordan Plantation as a consultant for the new African American museum that will be built at the site. He is co-chair of the Juneteenth Mural Committee in Galveston which will be one of the largest Public Art projects in the country recognizing Juneteenth and the contributions of the United States Colored Troops to delivering the message of freedom to the state of Texas on June 19, 1865.

BCI Partnership Vision
“My dream for the Beloved Community and Communities is that we create an environment of absolute equality that fosters the individual development of each person to their best self for the benefit of the entire community. Absolute equality is not a goal of equal results, but equal opportunity for personal growth without unnecessary roadblocks or obstacles that will hinder that growth.”
