She is also a member of the following school groups: Teens Against Drunk Driving, Dance Club, Teen Advisory Council, the Queens Community Health Board, Queens County Blades Committee and is a volunteer skating coach.
“I really just wanted to help out my school and help out my community,” says Scott.
Scott says one of her favourite organizations to be a part of is the Key Club.
“I was really passionate about other kids volunteering and being a part of their community too,” says Scott.
The Key Club does bingo at the manor, helped out at church suppers, reading groups at the Wickwire Academy, ushering at the Astor Theatre and more. Groups can contact the Key Club if they need help with volunteers.
Scott is also a cofounding member of the LRHS Gay-Straight Alliance. The group started to address some bullying issues going on with some students who were openly gay. She says the group is going very well.
“Our school didn’t really know the effects of homophobic bullying and that sort of thing.”
Scott plans on attending Dalhousie University next year to get her Bachelor’s degree in science.
