Scott Dozier Sheftall '73
Scott Dozier Sheftall came to Davidson from Jacksonville, Florida, with his eye already turned toward law. His experience in student government in high school had piqued his interest for a legal career, and his love for the outdoors that he inherited from his father steered him in directions that have also served him well in his lifetime. At Davidson, Scott served on the Freshman Advisory Council, was a delegate in Washington for a semester, played varsity golf and excelled in intramurals.
After leaving Davidson, Scott went to law school at the University of Florida. During that time, he also completed a term's studies in European Trade Law at Cambridge and at the Polish Institute of Legal Sciences in Warsaw. In 1975, he was selected best oralist for the National Moot Court team.
Scott's enthusiasm for Davidson has been obvious in his altruistic service to the Alumni and Admissions Offices. When faced with the call to serve as chapter president in South Florida, Scott accepted the challenge and continued his superlative efforts on behalf of the Davidson Alumni Admission Program. Scott has hosted numerous events for alumni, prospective students and their families and was a vital member of the South Florida Regional Campaign Steering Committee. Scott's love for alma mater is perhaps most evident when you are in his home, a modified replica of Phi Hall.
Because you make Davidson proud to claim you as her own, and because you inspire others to your high standards of service, the Alumni Association presents you, Scott Dozier Sheftall, with this Alumni Service Award on the occasion of a major gathering of the Davidson family in Miami this day.
