Who is Neal T.?


revised July '08

Neal T. Scott (that's me!), is a Christian, fiscally conservative, ragweed-allergic, Macintosh-lovin', Scotch-Irish descended, native Texan.

I'm eternally lucky to be married to my beautiful bride Sally (Robichaux) Scott and have two wonderful children, Erin & Patrick. Sally's an H.R. professional with Conoco-Phillips, Inc., and our kids are in school.... Erin will be a Junior this fall at Texas State University in San Marcos, and Patrick a Senior at Jersey Village High School in the Cy-Fair I.S.D.

Patrick is a busy, athletic young man and a talented soccer player. He plays both club ball and for his high school. His club team is the TSC Texans Elite '91, a Division 1 team that played in the "final four" of the 2006 President's Cup state tournament, and this year is on the verge of qualifying again for the state playoffs. He also was a starter for the Jersey Village High School's varsity soccer team.

Erin graduated in 2006 from Jersey Village and has been attending Texas State University in San Marcos for two years now. She's majoring in Health Profession Administration with plans to seek a Master's in Physical Therapy after completing her undergraduate work.

For the past 14 years I've been employed by Wildcat Electric Supply, Ltd, initially as Purchasing Manager, but in 2000 shifting my responsibilities to be I.T. (Information Technology) Manager. The last two years brought challenges as we converted to a new ERP software/computer system and then additionally to a wireless "RF" warehouse management system, going paperless in our receiving, put-away, and order-pulling.

Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, I was active in Scouting and attained the rank of Eagle in 1970. I also played tenor sax in the King High School "Mighty Mustang Marching Band" and handbells at our church, First Baptist. After graduating high school, I attended two years at Del Mar College in Corpus, then finished at Sam Houston State University receiving a BBA in Marketing in 1978. My true major was Alpha Phi Omega, with a minor in Student Government, but the diploma doesn't reflect that (the GPA, unfortunately, does!).
