Mourning Michael Scott

We at CNT are stunned and deeply saddened by the death of Michael Scott. He was a remarkable civic leader who cared greatly for the disadvantaged, especially children—whether residents of Lawndale or students at Fenger High School.

Michael’s early leadership helping to develop the Lawndale community led to his interest in, and the subsequent founding of, CNT. He served on our board for more than 10 years, holding the position of President twice.

He was a strong supporter of innovation who was never satisfied with the status quo and who will be dearly missed by CNT, as well as the broader Chicago community. Our thoughts and condolences are with Michael’s family and close friends.
