The Omaha Division honors Brigadier General Randolph Scott for dedication to improving the conditions of at-risk children and families needing support services.

Since retiring from the United States Air Force 16 years ago, General Scott has volunteered with Boys Town and has worked tirelessly as a national advocate and spokesperson for military families in crisis, including economically disadvantaged youth and individuals needing behavioral health support. In Omaha, General Scott works with disadvantaged youth in the area of science, technology, engineering and math education. In conjunction with the Alfonzo W. Davis Middle School, he also works with youth interested in aviation at Offutt Air Force Base. Through these programs, General Scott has exposed hundreds of disadvantaged students to science and engineering opportunities.

In an effort to expose the students at Boys Town to new cultures, General Scott regularly prepares Cajun and creole dinners for students and staff—donating not only his time but also the food itself. General Scott is well known in the Omaha community and serves on numerous community engagement boards working toward the common objective of helping youth in need. Some examples include programs that encourage young people to stay in school, those that work to prevent violence and gun crime in North Omaha, and those that educate the community about intervention services available to at-risk youth across the state.
