Students know when an instructor cares, and Nancy Scott makes no secret of her dedication to her students. Since 2012, Scott has taught several sections of courses connected to her discipline of management, such as Leadership Skills and Organizational Behavior, but she never hesitated to branch out to teach the capstone strategy class or Introduction to Business Management.

Now she must be considered awesome.”
