The Michael George Scott Scholarship


The Michael George Scott Scholarship has been established to honor Michael Scott '07 who passed away unexpectedly on June 19, 2016.  

The Michael Scott MVP Tournament will be held on May 15, 2022  to benefit the Michael George Scott Scholarship. Funds will be used to provide an annual scholarship named for Michael and will be presented to a UMS-Wright student-athlete who exhibits a zest for life, imparts happiness and joy to others, and demonstrates a commitment to UMS-Wright athletics. Michael’s contributions to the UMS-Wright athletics program are remembered as the two-year starting Varsity Football Quarterback, three-year starting Varsity Basketball Point Guard, and Varsity Track Sprinter. His success includes: Football State Championship MVP, Most Valuable Football Offensive Player, and the Bruce Filippini Award given annually to the football player who demonstrates a “Never Say Die” attitude. However, those who knew him well most recall the positive impact Michael had on people’s lives with a beaming smile, general love of life, friends, and family, and a charismatic personality. Most importantly, Michael was a man of character on and off the field. Without fail, he was someone who could be counted on to do the right thing when it mattered without any hint of hubris because of his talent and success.

Please join us as we honor the life and legacy of Michael Scott.
