Albion native Ruth Holland Scott, '56, discusses her life journey "From Albion to America: Community, Civil Rights, Civil Wrongs, & the DREAM" for the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation and Community Celebration. The event will be held in the downtown Bohm Theatre on Tuesday, January 27, at 7 p.m.

Educated in Albion's public schools, Scott graduated cum laude from Albion College in 1956; Scott has worked professionally as an educator, bank administrator, and CEO of her own consulting firm. Scott was the first African-American woman elected to the Rochester, New York, City Council, later becoming its president. She has been recognized by a number of local and national groups for community and volunteer service, and received the New York State Senate's 2005 Woman of Distinction Award. She earned a master's degree from Kent State University and an administration certificate from State University of New York at Brockport and participated in Dartmouth College’s Advanced Entrepreneurial Program for corporate executives.

The daughter of Albion community leaders Edna and Robert Holland, Scott continues to support local programs and initiatives. Scott was named an Albion College Distinguished Alumna in 1975 and received an honorary doctorate from Albion College in 2000.

"We are thrilled that Dr. Scott will be returning to her hometown and alma mater for this year's MLK Convocation and Community Celebration," said Patrick McLean, Albion College Ford Institute director and member of the community convocation planning committee. "Her family's history in the area, combined with her impressive accomplishments, will lend a unique and well-timed perspective to our local conversation about community, civil rights, and progress."
