Georgia Scott was the sort of teacher one never forgets. She was intelligent, caring, and dedicated to her profession and her students. I was fortunate to have learned from her for four years in high school. She was loved and will be missed.

I knew her as Mrs. Scott. She was my home economics teacher at Clarksville High School in 1960-64. She always had a smile on her face and laughter in her voice, and nothing seemed to ruffle her feathers. To this day, part of my dialogue when sitting down to a meal is, "Ms. Scott would approve/disapprove," depending on whether or not there is enough color on the plate. Her legacy for me is the many students she influenced at such a vulnerable age to take care of the business of making a home and/or career with a cheerful countenance and a resolve to complete whatever task is at hand to the best of your ability. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her and learned from her.
