Scott hails from Edmonton Alberta where he graduated from Ross Shepherd High School in 2006. He studied commerce at the University of Alberta and had extensive experience in the cabinet making (joinery) industry prior to discovering the Fine Woodworking Program at Selkirk College.
"I heard about the Fine Woodworking program through word of mouth. Having worked in the cabinet making (joinery) industry for most of my life, I was looking for an opportunity for professional skill development, which this program seemed to offer."
"While still studying in the Fine Woodworking program, my instructors encouraged and assisted me in challenging my Joinery Red Seal certification (I have had many years of industry experience prior to attending). The program equipped me with the additional skills needed to achieve this certification, and I certainly wouldn’t have considered lest attempted the challenge without the guiding influence of Ringheim and Stryck.
Beyond this, I have found employment in my field and continue to enjoy living and working in Nelson. While every day continues to be a learning experience, I am undoubtedly grateful for the experience and skills I was able to obtain in my time in the Fine Woodworking program."
"I enjoyed schooling on a smaller, more intimate campus. I also found it very easy to study in a community with such natural riches as Nelson."
