About Sam Baisden Memorial Sports Field - Cornerstone
Sam Baisden, age 25, died in Feb 2018 of a tragic accident at his home in Kingwood, TX. He was the son of Barry and Leslie Baisden of Kingwood, and the brother of Jacob. Barry previously served as the US Board Chairman of Naomi’s Village from 2015 – 2017. Sam was the nephew of Naomi’s Village Founders Bob and Julie Mendonsa. Sam starred in high school baseball and ran track in Kingwood. His family has decided to construct and dedicate a sports field with a track at our school to honor his memory. A $30,000 matching donation has just been offered to help us reach the total cost of $218,000. We had previously raised $158,000 for this need. All new donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, until a total of $60,000 is reached. Your gift will help with excavation, grading, field surface preparation, planting of grass, installation of running track, construction of concrete bleachers, purchase and installation of soccer goals, and signage.
