|Info||Sam was born and raised in North Carolina. He grew up in the small town of Hendersonville. His mother worked as a teacher’s assistant in public schools and his dad worked in the factories. Although money was often tight, Sam’s parents were loving and supportive. They taught Sam and his sister the value of education and hard work. |
When some of the factories where Sam’s dad worked sent their jobs overseas, it meant hard times for his family. When Sam was in the 7th grade, the Searcys lost their home. It was difficult for the entire family, but Sam resolved then to work as hard as he could to be successful. He took his first job at age 14 and worked throughout high school.
After law school, Sam worked a few different jobs until the Great Recession hit. He, like many North Carolinians, found himself laid off. But he remained undeterred. Sam once again got to work — taking a job at Lowe’s garden center to support his family. Eventually, Sam helped start innovative local companies which continue to employ people right here in North Carolina.
