Samy Broyles

Samy Broyles has been named director of community and alumni engagement by Miami University Regionals.

“The Regionals are committed to developing deeper connections with our alumni and the communities we serve,” said Ande Durojaiye, vice president and dean of Miami’s Regional campuses. “His skills, knowledge of our communities, and experience working with volunteers will be a great asset as we continue to expand and deepen those connections.”

A Miami alumnus, Broyles earned his Bachelor of Integrative Studies from Miami in 2015. While completing service learning coursework, he began volunteering at the Booker T. Washington Center. He became program director there in 2016, rising to program and community director in 2017, and then director of the center under the Great Miami Valley YMCA in 2018.

Developing successful collaborations, he brought together Hamilton City Schools, United Methodist Food Ministry, the city of Hamilton, Cincinnati Reds, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and many other groups and businesses to expand facilities and develop programs. In creating new programming, he oversaw the efforts of the center in working with the Boys & Girls Club, Fitton Center for Creative Arts, Hamilton Community Foundation, and more.

Since 2019, Broyles has served as the branch executive director for both the Booker T. Washington Center and the Hamilton Central Branch of the Great Miami Valley YMCA. In addition to securing $1.5 million for facility expansion, he helped develop the Grow Your Own Teacher initiative to encourage minority students to become teachers in the Hamilton City Schools.

“We look forward to having him as part of our team,” said Jennifer Clark, Regionals director of external relations and communications. “He brings a strong record of program development as well as volunteer recruiting and leadership that will help as we expand and strengthen our outreach efforts.”

Broyles and his wife, Joy, together with their four daughters, live in Hamilton. His public service includes serving on the board of Hamilton Rotary Club, Badin High School board of trustees, and Hamilton’s Board of Zoning Appeals.
