Fun Fact: Scott is a huge fan of the Andy Griffith show. A while back, he was lucky enough to spend two nights in Andy’s Mt. Airy, NC boyhood home. “Hey to Goober!”
Scott is a second-career educator, with 25 years in the Charleston business community. He was a founding partner of Silpro, Inc. and Charleston Samplers, and was a Regional Sales Manager for Sutter, US, a division of Unilever, AG. He teaches Entrepreneurship through the lens of his own experiences in the business world, which gives him considerable “Street Cred’ with his students. In the classroom, Scott encourages young minds to “build a better mousetrap” as they create innovative and fun Business Plans. It seems to be working. Scott’s experience with YESCarolina has been a successful one, with students finishing second statewide in the Business Plan Competition each of the last two years. Relevance always guides Scott’s instruction in the classroom. He knows that students want to be college and career-ready. His Entrepreneurship students are a little closer to that goal. To share a lifetime of experience with possible future business leaders is a responsibility that that Scott never takes lightly.
