Stanley Clayton Scott, a true example of strength and kindness, passed away on December 1, 2023, at the age of 71. Born on October 12, 1952, in Andrews, Texas to Forest and Vida Scott, Stanley leaves behind a legacy of compassion, dedication, and unwavering commitment.

Stanley's journey in education began early on, as he discovered his passion for teaching and coaching. Throughout his career, he had the privilege of imparting knowledge and guidance to numerous students in various school districts across the state of Texas. His expertise extended beyond the classroom walls as he eventually transitioned into becoming a school counselor – touching the lives of countless young individuals.

Graduating from Andrews High School, Stanley's talent in track and field earned him a scholarship to West Texas State University where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta. Determined to further expand his knowledge and skills, Stanley pursued a Master’s degree at Texas Tech University in counseling. His educational journey marked the beginning of his mission to make a profound difference in the lives of others.

His contributions extended far beyond teaching and counseling; Stanley was an integral part of the track community.

Stanley's voice resonated not only on the track but also behind the microphone as he provided radio commentary for high school football games. His enthusiasm and love for the sport shone through his words, captivating listeners with every call he made.

Stanley found solace in spending time in the mountains, his heart at peace amidst nature's beauty. Additionally, Stanley found joy in gardening—a true reflection of his nurturing spirit.

As an active member of the South Plains Church of Christ, Stanley served as a Deacon, selflessly dedicating his time to supporting and uplifting others in their faith journey. His genuine care and support touched the lives of many within the congregation.
