We were delighted to have Sam Read join us Monday evening.  She spotlighted our Club recently with our "Keep Ryder Riding" Fundraiser and "Random Acts of Rotary" program.  She has purchased a home here in Westerly - returning home at last.  Sam graduated from Springfield College in 2013 with a Comunications, Sports Journalism degree and then began her career in Panama City Beach, Florida.  She later moved to Maine reporting for CBS13 and FOX23.  "In 2017 she was awarded three first-place awards by the Associated Press for general assignment, continuing coverage and best sports feature."  Sam has been with WJAR, NBC 10 Team since 2018 and is a multimedia journalist on the Night Team.  And her "Good News" stories?  She shoots, writes, edits the segments all by herself.  If anyone has a story idea, reach out to Sam at skread@sbgtv.com.
