About SCOTTY SCOGGINS

My name is Scott Edward Orellaña Ingles Scoggins and I am proud to be of Pipil Nahuat, Pocoman Maya, and Scottish ancestry. I was born into a family that was deeply invested in various political and social movements in Latin America and the United States. This background instilled in me an internal drive, desire, and sense of duty to work towards social justice for all. I implement multicultural education programs that challenge, inspire, support, and motivate young people to pursue higher education. My current work specifically connects Native American Indian youth to higher education opportunities that will enable them to take on leadership roles within their tribal communities. My personal motto, “Tradition for Life - Education For Our Future” cuts to the core of my belief in a dual focus on traditional learning and preparation for success in both local and global networks. My comprehensive programs are designed to support students on intellectual, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

1st get together: College Fair “Take Action, Go to College”

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all doing well and have settled back to your routines. It is hard to believe that it has only been less than a week since we last saw each other and I truly miss you all. Just to keep our momentum going we are now in the planning stages of our first get together set for Saturday, September 17. We will be leaving from Pitzer at 9:00 AM and traveling to the City of Commerce to participate in their College Fair. We will be returning to Pitzer no later than 5:00 PM as I would like to take a side trip to the Griffith Observatory (http://www.griffithobs.org/). Please pass this along to the others in our pipeline family and please confirm you will be able to go. Stay tune for more information.

Peace and many blessings to my pipeline family,
