Tawana Scott

Tawana Scott joined the Limestone family in October 2021 and is the Coordinator for the University’s Learning Enrichment Achievement Program, which is also known as LEAP.

She attended USC-Upstate where she received her bachelor’s in psychology before attending Liberty University and graduating with a master’s in professional counseling. Tawana felt Limestone provided her with a great environment where she could serve students and help them along their journeys in life.

A fun-fact about Tawana: “I always expect the unexpected. And if I see you without a smile, I will be sure you leave with one!”

The annual observance of Black History Month across the United States, which is also known as African-American History Month, pays tribute to generations of African-Americans and the significant roles they have played in shaping our nation’s history and society.

Tawana noted that Black History Month is about uplifting and reminding people of all of the achievements from the black community throughout America's history that were made during times where they seemed impossible. Through the way she carries herself each and every day, she wants to continue the mantra of being "defined by the content of our character and integrity.”

Shedding light on some of the influential figures in her life, she said her mother and sister, as well as Michelle Obama, all embody what it means to be strong and independent, while also carrying yourself with class – which is something she holds in high regard.

(As part of its observance of Black History Month, Limestone University is profiling some of the faculty, staff, and alumni members who make The Rock such a special place.
