Cathy Scott Named Next President Of Bible In The Schools

Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Cathy Scott has been named president of Bible in the Schools, a nonprofit organization which for 94 years has funded the opportunity for Hamilton County public school students to study the Bible as a for-credit elective, at no cost to taxpayers.

Ms. Scott succeeds Ralph Mohney, Jr., who retires after seven years in leadership.

In the past few years, Ms. Scott has served as a corporate sales consultant with the Maclellan Foundation, a professional grant writer and educational advancement consultant, the director of development at Chattanooga Christian School, and in teaching roles at Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church, as well as in the Dade County public school system.

“I am deeply humbled and honored to have been elected president of Bible in the Schools.
I believe that biblical literacy, as well as the moral and ethical fabric of today’s postmodern youth, is disintegrating at an alarming rate – to the detriment of our culture, families, and society at large. It is in light of this that I believe there is no greater privilege than leading an organization that makes possible opportunities for young people to be introduced and exposed to the hope, wisdom, knowledge, and biblical ethics found in the Bible. Bible in the Schools is actively investing in tomorrow’s leaders, and is quietly, yet significantly strengthening the moral fabric of the next generation. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of this work,” Ms. Scott said.

A native of South Africa, Ms. Scott currently resides with her husband, Jonathan, and their two sons in Lookout Valley. They have been active members of Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church for nearly 25 years.

Ms. Scott is a graduate of Covenant College with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She brings 15 years of experience working in schools, and is working on her master’s in educational leadership through the Covenant College Graduate School of Education. She is also a certified and licensed educator in both the State of Tennessee and Georgia.
