His gregarious nature and love of people were evident in all areas of his work and personal life. Scott studied Industrial Engineering at North Carolina State University. After graduating in 1973, Scott entered the insurance industry with Aetna Life & Casualty. For more than a quarter century he worked for Wells Fargo and its predecessors as a commercial insurance agent. He was one of the nation's foremost insurance experts on temporary staffing firms and was recognized by the North Carolina Association of Staffing Professionals on multiple occasions.
