Bernard J. Scott has dedicated more than 37 years to the advancement of agriculture by teaching hundreds of students through agricultural education at Otsego High School. He also helped convert the agriscience curriculum into semester courses that were taught by subject matter, locally. A few years later, that same change was made statewide. 

Always looking to the future, Scott and his FFA chapter constructed the FFA Time Capsule that was opened at the 75th FFA Convention. He also advised his students in the design and construction of the first "grain rescue tube" that was available for the public to use.

After retiring from teaching, he helped establish the Agricultural Incubator Foundation to facilitate research and educational activities for the advancement of the industry. Since the creation of this Foundation, numerous opportunities have been made available to residents with entrepreneurial ideas for food and agriculture.

Scott has given service to the Wood Soil & Water Conservation District, the National FFA proficiency awards, Washington Twp. Volunteer Fire Department, Town & Country Farm Safety Day camp, Ohio Vocational Association, Ohio Education Association and numerous Wood county organizations.

He has been awarded the Distinguished Alumni award from OSU, College of FAES, the Ohio State Alumni Citizenship award and the Honorary American Degree.

He resides with his wife, Jean in Tontogeny. They have seven children.
