To steal a quote from Scott that speaks to his character: I take pride in my work, whether it is clearing incidents or accidents on the interstate or reading to a first grade class at the elementary school. The first is financially rewarding but the second, sharing time with youth in our schools is emotionally gratifying beyond description.
