Scott is a native Vermonter - born and raised in a community of roughly 12,000 in Brattleboro - in the far southern regions of the state where he attended private schools and was a Varsity-level lacrosse player. Scott is a graduate of the University of Vermont where he majored in Political Science & History, in hopes of becoming a teacher someday. However, when he attended Green Mountain BoyState in his junior year of high school - Scott was bit by the Vermont public service bug. At UVM, Scott was elected to the Student Government Association - serving as the longest serving chairman of the powerful Committee on Legislative Action (COLA), where he worked to numerous issues over his three year tenure such as student safety, affordable off-campus housing, state higher education funding, creating of the UVM Office of Student & Community Relations and numerous other issues affecting students. He is currently a Town Meeting Representative in Brattleboro as well as a member of several local boards including the Development Review Board and the Parks & Recreation Board.

Whether he's snow showing with friends or hitting the slopes of Jay Peak or tossing the lacrosse ball around on the UVM Green - Scott is excited to be part of the Public Administration program. He currently splits his time between his native Brattleboro and Burlington, along with his golden retriever, Hallie.
