It’s been nearly seventeen years since Jerome Scott, the beloved vice president and dean of student development and the first African-American to serve on Gardner-Webb’s senior staff, last strolled the campus in Boiling Springs. But stroll up to 10 people and ask them what they remember about Mr. Scott, and you’ll quickly find that his spirit is still very much alive. Scott was only 40 when, during an administrative staff retreat in May 1995, he died suddenly of heart failure.
