Sam Malchar

Sam Malchar is a member of the Galveston Island Rotary Club since 2015.  He joined Rotary “because of all the great work Rotary does not only in our community but in the world.”   Sam’s introduction to Rotary was through the North Shore Rotary club as a recipient of a scholarship.  He is a first-generation Rotarian and hopeful that his kids will be inspired to join someday.  His wife attended RYLA while in high school in Oklahoma and is also a recipient of a Rotary Scholarship.

During his relatively short tenure as a Rotarian, he has been Chair of both the membership and fundraising committees, Vice President, President-elect, and President of his Club.

When asked about his personal experience, Sam says, “I have grown up within Rotary, joining as a 22-year-old.  The mentorship I have received from some of the best leaders in our community is priceless.”  Sam maintains an active role within his Club for countless reasons, but sums it up by saying, “…I know we have more work to do to leave Galveston better than we found it.”

Sam says that the 4-way test has a huge influence on his professional life.  He strives to always act in his clients and colleague’s best interest.
