On April 19th, the RPCC Executive Leadership Team had the opportunity to meet with the Scott family to discuss the Everett Scott Memorial Scholarship! This scholarship was established in memory of Everett Thomas Scott who died in a tragic accident at the early age of nineteen years. Dana and Alden Scott, Everett’s mother and brother, presented the RPCC Foundation an additional donation to supplement this endowed scholarship.
Everett, had always desired to work with his hands in a vocational trade. Upon graduation from Catholic High, he began working as an HVAC helper and was preparing to enroll at River Parishes Community College seeking an Associates or Technical Diploma in HVAC Technology. His dream was cut short but through the support of his family, friends, and Ms. Scott’s co-workers at BASF, Everett’s kindness, good-heartedness, and love of vocational work will live on through this scholarship.
