Sam Rasoul represents the Eleventh District in the General Assembly House of Delegates and has won The Roanoker magazine’s Platinum Award for “Government Person Who Gets It” for the past two years.
After receiving his BBA from Roanoke College and MA in International Business from Hawaii Pacific University, he became a small business owner and later the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of a non-profit healthcare firm. Sam channeled his passion for healthcare reform into finding more compassionate ways to care for our seniors and helping with maternal and child health in East Africa.
Delegate Rasoul helped organize a #RealRoanoke rally to demonstrate to residents and beyond that Roanoke is a welcoming city that celebrates diversity. The #RealRoanoke movement continues with multicultural events in the region such as Taste of Culture and Local Colors.
Sam also currently has his own small business that helps organizations become more successful through developing better business plans and through investing in their employees.
