Chuck, I wish you would have written about Sam Borozan instead of your political agenda. Sam (Mr. NAU) was an amazing person. His life revolved around NAU from the day he entered NAU as a freshman in 1953, until the day he was unable to walk around campus anymore. He was a common sight on the NAU campus. He even donated his salary back to the University. He donated to the various women's athletics, buying uniforms, backpacks, etc. If he heard of a student that was financially unable to travel back home for the holidays, there suddenly appeared a plane ticket.
He also established several scholarships. He even taught a class until he became sick and had to retire about three years ago. Sam also donated all his fees from refereeing youth sports for many, many years back to their organizations. This also included NAU sports. Sam was from Tucson and when he wasn't at NAU, he volunteered his time at the Catholic school as an amazing math teacher working with his elementary students.
Sam served in the United States Marine Corps and traveled to many countries. His phone was always busy with phone calls from friends, and current and former students. Some calls came from successful former students thanking him for being there for them. There is much more to tell about Sam's life at NAU. He will be sadly missed by friends, current and former students who knew Mr. NAU. Sam passed away July 25 at the age of 90. RIP Sam and bless you on your next adventure.
