Addison Scott Carries On the SkyHawk Tradition
Sending your oldest child to high school at Skutt Catholic is a milestone for any parent, but for Jake ’02 and Sarah Young Scott ’02, their experience was even more sentimental. Jake and Sarah met in the halls of Skutt Catholic during their own freshman years in 1998, and they have been together ever since.
A SENSE OF COMFORT AND PRIDE
When their middle school daughter Addison expressed an interest in following in her parents’ footsteps and becoming a SkyHawk, Jake and Sarah felt a sense of comfort and pride. Although much has changed and improved since they attended Skutt Catholic, they still recognized the same halls and classrooms that held so many memories for them.
Their experience at Skutt Catholic prompted the couple to choose a Catholic education for their three daughters, Addison, Evelyn and Charlotte.
“The values and community we experienced at Skutt Catholic is what made us choose Catholic education for our children,” said Sarah.
In the classroom, she said the strong academics and high expectations prepared them for the next phase in their journey.
“We both felt our educational experience set us ahead of our peers and more than prepared us for college academics.”
THEIR WISH FOR ADDISON
“We hope Addison experiences the pride and fun that come with being a SkyHawk. So much has changed in the past 25 years in terms of school traditions, but what’s clear is that the feeling of community is still there and is what makes Skutt Catholic what it is,” Sarah said.
