Community Builder

In January 2015, Kam joined WSC as its Executive Director, bringing with him an extensive background in Chicago area sports from his time developing communities with the Chicago Cubs, playing on the University of Illinois football team, and working as an usher at Wrigley Field, Soldier Field, and the United Center. Kam has also worked for the New Orleans Mayor’s office and for Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL). He is excited to provide youth all over the city the chance to engage in sports and the opportunity to succeed despite often rough circumstances. Kam is the son of a CPS teacher and a CPD officer and is following in their footsteps by giving back to the Chicago community. Kam knows firsthand the power sports have to build important character traits and impart life lessons and he is ready to empower more youth to live their dreams.
