Sameer Paroo ’01 rides again

Sameer Paroo ’01 is an “M” Award-winning, Toronto-born Mustang who grew up in Orlando and completed high school in Plano, Texas. The avid basketball fan has visited approximately 33 countries since finishing graduate school and has worked in both Nairobi, Kenya, and Vancouver, Canada. In fall 2000, as an SMU senior, he represented the Program Council as a Homecoming king candidate in the Homecoming parade. Twenty-one years later, Sameer had the opportunity to ride in the parade again, but this time as chair of the Asian Pacific Islander Alumni of SMU. We caught up with Sameer to see what’s been happening beyond the Hilltop.
