The family of Samuel (Sam) Logan has created a scholarship in his name at University of Detroit Mercy. He graduated from the University’s College of Business Administration in 1973.
Logan served as publisher of the Michigan Chronicle for 40 years and was co-owner of Real Times, the parent company of the Chronicle and FrontPage, Chicago Defender, New Pittsburgh Courier and Memphis Tri-State Defender newspapers.
Named Publisher of the Year three times by the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), he was also inducted in the Hall of Fames of Joe Louis Arena, Cobo Hall, Junior Achievement, the International Institute Foundation, and most recently, UDM’s College of Business Hall of Honor.
The Samuel Logan Scholarship at UDM will afford students with limited financial resources to attend the institution that he personally felt so strongly about. Diane Taylor, one of Logan’s daughters, also graduated from UDM with a degree from the College of Health Professions. Taylor explained, “He was extremely proud of his education here and showed his ring proudly to everyone.”
