Introducing Sam Williamson, Rockefeller’s New Co-Curricular Programs Coordinator!

Sam used to compete as a collegiate skier.

Prior to joining the Rockefeller Center, Sam Williamson opted to become a school administrator at an innovative K-12 charter school in Ogden, Utah instead of pursuing a career in international diplomacy. In Ogden, he designed programs to boost core test scores and spearheaded education technology research and development, including designing cutting-edge networks for two new schools and securing a one-to-one ratio of computers to students through donations and grants. Sam also spent two years living in Santiago, Chile volunteering as a Spanish interpreter and designing programs for leadership development in the country’s poorest areas.

Born in Hanover and raised in Hartland, VT, Sam graduated from Skidmore College with a B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Studio Art. He enjoys ski racing, flying airplanes and creating and selling commissioned artwork.

Sam is thrilled to be on board at the Center and is currently developing the Create Your Path program – an innovative program to guide students through an in-depth self-reflection to develop a strategic plan for their future. Sam is also expanding the Rockefeller Internships program and developing the Mentoring program as it goes into its second year.

With his artistic background, Sam hopes to bring a creative perspective to the Rockefeller Center in order to reach more students on a personal level and help them to gain hands-on experience as leaders.
