Scott is no stranger to Rochester as he grew up in Clawson, MI. Scott’s family has been long time supporters of the College dating back to the school’s early years. Scott began his service at Rochester College in 2002 as he brought his strong business background to the classroom as a faculty member in the College of Business. However, Scott’s success in leading an employee campaign for the Athletic Center and his desire to work with prospective students led him out of the classroom and into Advancement. Scott brings a wealth of experience to Rochester College as he spent 14 years in banking and investment. In addition to his responsibilities in banking, Scott also spent time as a personal financial advisor for professional athletes. He graduated from Oklahoma Christian in 1986 and went on to complete a Masters of finance from Walsh College in 1996. Scott is married to Christie (Powers) and they have one son, Jacob Scott Samuels.
