Waynesburg University will host David C. Scott as the Glenn A. and Jane L. Crosby Lecture Series speaker Tuesday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. The lecture will be held in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of Waynesburg University. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
North Texas native David C. Scott is the author of four nationally award-winning and bestselling books. “The Scouting Party” (2010) recounts the origins of the Scouting movement. “We Are Americans, We Are Scouts” (2008) fuses the words and stories of President Theodore Roosevelt within the framework of the ideals of the Boy Scouts of America, and “Where Character is Caught” (2013) details the storied history of Dallas’ (TX) Circle Ten Council, Boy Scouts of America. His newest work, “My Fellow Americans" (2014), details the symbiotic relationship between Scouting and the U.S. presidency.
Scott has been involved with Scouting for more than 30 of his 43 years. As a 1981 recipient of the Eagle Scout award, including five Eagle palms, Scott grew up in the Circle 10 Council and prospered under quality adult tutelage as a Cub Scout as well as a Boy Scout. A Vigil Honor member in the Order of the Arrow and a Wood Badge recipient, he graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and continued onward to Southern Methodist University, where he earned a master’s degree in applied economics in 1993.
