Kennesaw State University is so very proud to announce that their own Dr. Thomas Scott has won the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council Lifetime Achievement Award!
The award will be presented during GHRAC’s annual Awards Program in October, which is National and Georgia Archives Month, at the Georgia Archives in Morrow, GA.
Dr. Thomas A. Scott is professor emeritus of history at Kennesaw State University, where he taught from 1968 until his retirement in 2011. He is a former recipient of KSU’s highest faculty honor, the Distinguished Teaching Award. Dr. Scott has led the KSU Oral History Project for many years and is the author of three books: Cornerstones of Georgia History; Cobb County, Georgia, and the Origins of the Suburban South; and Kennesaw State University: The First Fifty Years.
In retirement, Tom continues to serve on a part-time basis as Campus Historian. He thoroughly enjoys retirement and is an avid sports fan from the Braves to KSU football to all the sports teams at his alma mater.
Fun Fact: Tom ran track and cross country at the University of Tennessee in the early 1960s and has been doing interviews of his old track coach and fellow athletes for their website, The Chuck Rohe Track Era.
