Scott Reynolds '63, was urged to attend Trinity by several alumni, including John Carpenter '40, a good friend of his mother's at Burlington High School (VT). Scott's dad, a Notre Dame graduate and "liberal arts convert," was impressed with Professor Battis, Dean Lacy, and Placement Director John Butler '33 and was pleased to send two more sons to Trinity.
Professors Dando, Cooper, Johnson, Curran, Bobko, Gastmann, and Davis opened a world of ideas for Scott and helped him develop critical thinking and curiosity. As president of Theta Xi and a member of Medusa, his maturity and responsibility were kindled.
"I was most fortunate as a Baker Scholar to have John Butler as mentor and adviser. John was a pioneer in career services and one of the best. He got me started on Wall Street with summer jobs and persuaded both me and Harvard Business School that I should attend."
After serving in the Army and having a long and distinguished career at Bankers Trust, Scott returned to his alma mater in 1996 and became secretary of the College until his retirement last year. Now, almost fifty years later, Scott serves as gift chair for his 50th Reunion. He has led by example, making a lead gift to the Class of 1963 Scholarship Fund with a series of gift annuities.
