Dr. Scott was the 17th president of Marietta College from 2000-2012. Upon her retirement in early 2012, the Dr. Jean A. Scott Staff Award for Distinctive Service was established to acknowledge and reward excellence among the college’s non-faculty staff. The award will be given annually to a deserving staff member chosen through a nomination process and committee review.

The Dr. Jean A. Scott Staff Award for Distinctive Service recognizes high-quality service among the staff at Marietta College. Staff selected for this prestigious award will receive a one-time monetary award and the perpetual right to be recognized as the recipient of the Dr. Jean A. Scott Award of Distinctive Service. Please note that staff excludes faculty and cabinet members.

Nominations will be accepted through December 15th. Winners will be recognized at the Founders Day celebration.
