Educated locally, Scott graduated from Elisabeth Ann Johnson High School with the Class of 1991. He went on to earn his associate's degree in accounting from Baker College. Scott found his passion while studying karate, earning the rank of Sam Dan, 3rd Degree Black Belt. His dream was to pursue owning and teaching in his own martial arts studio. For many years, Scott was involved with PKSA, Professional Karate Schools of America, creating strong friendships with all involved. Scott loved teaching his students the art of karate.
