When I think of the University of North Carolina, guess who comes to mind?
Michael Jordan? Good guess, but no. Dean Smith? He’s right up there, but not first.
For me, No. 1 is Don Scott.
He was “Mr. Tar Heel” in Lancaster. The Red Rose City has its share of folks who bleed Carolina blue, but Mr. Scott led the way.
The popular community and civic leader and businessman died Sept. 24, two days after his 90th birthday, fittingly a Saturday when he enjoyed many a UNC victory.
