In the coming months, Joshua Scott will conduct a Houston High School Tour, to get students ready for their next stage in life.

Scott, wears many hats and has dedicated his life to being an outstanding contributor in the community. Professionally and personally, Scott exudes and embodies the confidence and acute empathy that commits him to the principle of helping others.
