Samantha Curtis attended the 2006 MassSTAR Conference as a representative of Boston Latin School. She learned tools and mindsets that helped her find her voice and develop a deep conviction that anyone, regardless of title or age, can lead. In 2008, Sam joined the Board of Directors as the first high school member in the Board’s history, and was nominated by the Board as a finalist for the National Women’s Conference “Woman of the Year” in 2011. She has served on the Board and Conference Planning Committee in various capacities, including Director of Alumni Relations, Director of In-Kind Donations, and Director of Empowered Citizenship Grants. She is thrilled to return to the Board as Co-Director of Alumni Relations. She hopes to develop programming that empowers alumni to think critically and inspires them to lead with purpose. Knowing that young people hold limitless potential when provided with the space to collaborate and explore their ideas, it is an honor for her to work in this energizing role.
Sam started her career as a special education teacher with Teach for America over ten years ago. She has had the privilege of supporting Newcomer students and driving efforts to infuse social-emotional learning into the school day, and most recently, returning to work at her high school. She stays busy planning her next getaway, working out, and spending time with family and friends.
