  • + #10 For Scots, Community is Everything...

    There is a Scot state of mind, body, spirit. It’s a thoughtful and meaningful way of being -- it’s treating every person, every day, with kindness, honor, integrity, and respect. It’s being an active part of a spirited community of individuals who have an overwhelming sense of pride for who they are and what they are working to become. What Scots embody is a spirit of creativity coupled with the confidence to define what success is to them --- and the courage to follow it.
