Unlike most persons of Cenla, I do not know the Scott family well and I have not been here long enough to know about Jock Scott’s father nor about any of Mr. Scott’s many accomplishments. What I do know is that every Thursday night, in a dorm on Levin Street, Jock Scott taught a bible study and mentored the homeless men staying in the POA’s homeless shelter. In my very few chance meetings with Mr. Scott, he always proved to be a gentleman, a thinker, and a man of faith. I know that not only will the whole city miss Mr. Scott, but Mr. Scott’s presence will also be missed at the table of the Grace House men’s dorm.
Thank you for giving so much of yourself back to the community
