Scott Has Declined Appointment to State Board of Education

Following up on an article that appeared in the Herald last week, it has been called to our attention that Delbert Scott declined the appointment to the Missouri Board of Education.
Scott currently serves as president of Kansas Christian College. His membership on the Missouri School Board would be a violation of state law.
It seems Missouri law prohibits school and university employees from serving on the state board.
Scott is a graduate of Mt. Zion Bible School at Ava and is a former Missouri state representative.
