In presenting this award to Scott, PACE (Performing Arts Curriculum Experience) Dance Teacher Allison Parsley said, “Scott is an actor. He is a singer, and he is a dancer. Each of Scott’s performances in these areas are strong, engaging and are the result of intense work both in and out of the rehearsal room”
