Scott grew up in Jamestown pulling tobacco and working in furniture factories.

Aside from a seven-year stint in Atlanta following graduation from law school, Scott has lived in the Piedmont Triad all of his life.

Prior to returning to the practice of law in North Carolina, Scott ran a corrugated box manufacturing company in High Point for several years.

An avid music lover, Scott enjoys listening to everything from blue grass to opera (just don’t ask him to sing).

Since returning to the Triad, Scott has been an active volunteer in programs such as Cities in Schools, Oak Ridge Youth Association, Summerfield Recreation Association, the American Red Cross, and the Boy Scouts of America, where he currently serves as chairman of the Guilford District, the largest district in the Old North State Council.
