What the nominator said:

“Scott is focused on serving his community and envisions a healthier, more prosperous citizenry for the state of Delaware. He has volunteered many hours of his time to multiple nonprofits and community organizations and it is his passion to take all that he has learned here and elsewhere and apply it to making Delaware
a better place to live.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

Twitter

Biggest break:

When I was 17, I was a passenger in what should have been a fatal car accident. Where I was sitting was completely demolished. And yet, somehow, I walked away (mostly intact).”

Two words that best describe you:

Curious and benevolent.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“I walk my dog, Buddy, every day. It’s great exercise, it clears my mind, and it’s been a wonderful way to get to know my neighbors.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“To quote John Lennon, ‘Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.’ That being said, in my experience as a teacher and a parent, I feel the next generation has much to teach us as well.”

In one sentence, define success:

“In this case, I will quote Ralph Waldo Emerson because this line has stuck with me ever since I first read it more than 20 years ago: ‘To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to leave the world a better place; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.’ ”
