The Eric Scott Compassion Award

Eric Scott was a well-loved, long-time information technician at Great Oaks.  His technology work was exemplary, but he was also known for his passion and desire to create an environment of respect, success and equity for students, staff and all who came in contact with Great Oaks.  He was an original member of the District Equity Council and served for many years on its leadership team.  He passed away suddenly in March 2017; this award is intended to encourage the continuance of his work.

This is an annual award given to the full-time or part-time Great Oaks associate who has best contributed to an organizational culture that embraces the diverse strengths and desires of students and associates.  The award was created by Eric’s family, friends and colleagues and is administered by the Great Oaks Education Foundation.
