I asked her daughter in-law, Dr. Monica Scott, a member of the Class of 2007 and the Director of Enrollment Management, what would you say are Mrs. Scott's fondest memories are of Fair Lane? Dr. Scott stated "that is easy, joining the Beta Chi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated; participating in the Pre-Alumni Council and Phi Beta Lambda Business Organization; and working in the President's Office. You can always find Mrs. Scott heavily supporting the Pre-Alumni Council on their trips to conference by participating in all fundraisers that they have.
