Scott was a gentle sweet guy that was gracious enough to take me to the senior prom. I will always treasure his friendship in my heart.

Scott was the darling of the Royal Choir.  Many of us gals in the Alto section thought he was cute and he treated us all with respect.  I remember when he was part of all the musicals.  He is another classmate who should still be here.  :(
