Scott says, “The synergism of being at one of the top academic institutions in the world, where you are surrounded by outstanding faculty and staff, where you can cheer for one of the top college athletic programs in the U.S. and attend incredible events at the prodigious School of Music’s Musical Theatre Program, has made living in Ann Arbor so enjoyable. I have been blessed to work with so many talented and personable undergraduate and graduate students during my 53 years in Ann Arbor. It has been an extremely rewarding experience to be a part of the University of Michigan all these years.”
