Sam Rhodes, President
Sam Rhodes is the son of George Rhodes and has been involved in the family business full time since 1998. He is the primary manager and overseer of the KeyboardTeacher Company and it’s products. “I would say that traveling and meeting teachers around the nation who love and have had success with our products is the most rewarding aspects of my job” he says.
“Being apart of something that my father built and being able to continue to be a part of it’s growth is something that I am ever grateful for and being able to put in my own spin in the process is also an added bonus. As long as there are computers, there will be the need for keyboarding, as long as there is keyboarding, there will be “hunt & peck” students, and that is where we come in.”
In his free time, Sam volunteers for Camp Dream as a camp counselor. Since 1996, Camp Dream has provided a traditional summer camp experience for children and young adults with moderate to severe disabilities.
