Sam Gilles left his home in Haiti shortly after the 2010 earthquake there and, at the age of 16, came to the U.S. in hopes of getting a good education and a better life. He ended up in Melrose, where the Sherlock family welcomed him into their home, and he is a proud graduate of Melrose High School. Sam is attending Regis College and is scheduled to graduate this May. Sam is not an American citizen, so he is not eligible for financial aid, and Regis does not give athletic scholarships. The Sherlocks have held several fund-raisers for him over the year to defray expenses, but Sam still owes over $11,000, which must be paid in order for him to graduate. If you would like to help Sam graduate on time, check out the fundraising page that has been set up for this purpose.
