The first story in our #CFABlackHistory series is about Piney and Dr. Leo Scott.
This video, while an understatement about their immeasurable impact, highlights some of the reasons Piney and Leo meant so much to Abilene and the Community Foundation of Abilene.
Dr. Scott was CFA's first black board member, Abilene's first black city council member, and the first black pharmacist in our community.
Piney was a longtime educator, civic leader, and the first black adjunct professor at Hardin-Simmons University.
The Scotts were a big part of the Greater Abilene Minister's Alliance scholarship at CFA and eventually started their own Leo and Piney Scott Scholarship fund.
