The an­nual Awards cel­e­brate the out­stand­ing achieve­ments and ex­cep­tional qual­i­ties of Monash alumni world­wide, and are be­stowed upon a sin­gle alum­nus of each fac­ulty each year.

Scott earned his Bach­e­lor of Pharmacy in 1969, mar­ried a fel­low pharmacy grad­u­ate and as hus­band and wife they pur­chased their first pharmacy at Whit­tle­sea in 1972.

Mind­ful of his com­mu­nity re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, Scott be­came a mem­ber of the Whit­tle­sea Shire Coun­cil, and later Chair­man of the Re­gional Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Coun­cils, un­til at one stage he was in­volved with 23 lo­cal com­mit­tees.

He as­sumed re­spon­si­bil­ity of board mem­ber­ship of Bun­doora Aged Care Cen­tre, chair of Whit­tle­sea Sev­er­ance Com­mit­tee and the Pro­mote Whit­tle­sea As­so­ci­a­tion as well as pres­i­dency of the Whit­tle­sea Health Cen­tre.

Scott has also been recog­nised by his peers through many awards in­clud­ing a Life Mem­ber and Distin­guished Ser­vice Medal of the Pharmacy Guild, a Fel­low of the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety and the Aus­tralian Col­lege of Pharmacy, and Medals of Ex­cel­lence from the Pharmacy Prac­tice Foun­da­tion of Sydney and MSD Aus­tralia.

As well as be­ing in­volved in the train­ing of pharmacy as­sis­tants and tech­ni­cians in Aus­tralia and the USA, Scott was in­vited by Health Min­is­ter Sus­san Ley to be one of the three mem­ber panel re­view­ing Pharmacy Re­mu­ner­a­tion and Reg­u­la­tion.
