Whenever Samantha McGrath is spotted on campus, she’s usually running from one function to the next—with a big smile on her face. McGrath radiates positivity and energy, and this quality has made her a natural leader at WMU.
McGrath’s accolades are many; she has served as president of the Student Leadership Advisory Board and Food Marketing Association, and was a Fall Welcome captain, Western Student Association senator, business externship mentor and teaching assistant. She also serves in a variety of community and volunteer outreach programs. For these reasons and more, she was named Outstanding Student Leader of the Year at the University’s 2019 Golden Bronco Awards.
An avid traveler, McGrath has embarked on five study abroad trips to Germany, Guatamala, India, Portugal and Thailand. This ambitious Bronco also serves as an undergraduate research assistant, Haworth College of Business student ambassador, and food marketing program assistant. She looks forward to applying these experiences to her MBA, which she will pursue at WMU in fall 2020.
