DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 5 WORDS. NO MORE. NO LESS. AND YOU CAN’T USE HARD-WORKING.

Hard working...  Oh... 

I know that its a little corny and that I'm short by 2, but as a "Navy guy" (Naval Reservist), I try to live up the Navy's core values:  Honor, Courage and Commitment.  

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Scott didn’t understand the assignment. But we like his core values so we’ll give him a pass.)

FAVORITE COLLEGE MEMORY?

My senior year I was one of the two student coordinators for "Move in Weekend."  As a part of the weekend our Orientation Group Leaders put on a variety show for the new freshmen.  I busted out my accordion and got 600 freshmen to rock out to the "Chicken Dance."

FAVORITE COLLEGE MEMORY?

My sophomore year of college, my roommate bought me a Koi fish (because my last name is Coy and she thought it was funny)-- it was 3 inches long and lived in a fish bowl. We never anticipated the fish to stick around very long but it has now been 3 years and my fish is now 11 inches long and living in a 20 gallon aquarium. To this day when she comes to visit, we still laugh about the day she brought home the fish and how it will probably still be around for many years to come!
