Vicki sending love, thoughts and prayers to you and your family during this tough time.

Norma Walters

I worked with Scott in Student Council for many years. We attended workshops, conventions and summer camp at Millikin in Decatur. We had such a good friendship and I adored him. I talked about him alot to my family and my youngest daughter referred to him as my "Chicago Boyfriend" He treated everyone with kindness and love and it is apparent in the influence he had on his students and fellow teachers. He will be greatly missed. Norma Walters
