Sam McGrath
Sam McGrath is currently a high school senior at Pleasant Valley High School and plans to major in business at Iowa State University. In his free time, Sam volunteers at St. John Vianney, enjoys playing in the Pleasant Valley Band, and spends time with his family including two chihuahuas. Sam’s interest in the band has resulted in him being selected for the Iowa All-State band three years in a row. When he is not spending time with friends creating computer programs, he works at Target. On some weekends, he can be seen playing pickup football with some of his friends as he is a huge fan of college sports. As the upcoming business manager for the Spartan Shield, Sam looks forward to a bright future.
