Sam Chester: Recipient of The 2021 -2022 Entrepreneurship and Family Business Scholarship

Sam Chester is the inaugural recipient of the Entrepreneurship and Family Business Scholarship. Sam is a senior Business Management major, with a concentration in Entrepreneurship, from Memphis, Tennessee. Sam is the president of Knights Social Club, Vice President of the Harding Chapter of Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society, and on the Waldron Center Student Advisory Board as well as the COBA Student Advisory Board.

 Sam Chester plans to return to his family business, Property Solutions Group, in Memphis. Sam exemplifies the Christian business ideals that the Waldron Center espouses and that I aspire to teach. I am confident that Sam will bless others through his business and most importantly he will glorify God and show God to others through his family business.

The scholarship is funded by the Bennett and Margie Wood endowed scholarship and will be given every year to a student that exemplifies the entrepreneurial and/or family business characteristics of blessing others through business. The scholarship award is $2000. For more information or to donate to the scholarship please contact Emily Gentry at
