Dick Scott is our longest standing current Board member joining RHA’s Board in 2003 and shortly thereafter, and still is, the Chairman. He was asked to sit on the Board by then Councilwoman, Jessica Sferrazza and has been re-nominated four times. Dick has been a Reno resident for 47 years, coming here originally for just a one year job assignment with Rainbow Baking Company and has loved the area ever since. Dick has had the pleasure of serving on many Boards and gets the most satisfaction being on the RHA Board. He states helping so many that need a hand up is gratifying and that he sleeps well knowing he is a part of something that is so meaningful.
Other Boards Dick has served on include RSCVA, TRPT and RTC. On the RTC Board, he was fortunate to take part in the approval process bringing public bus lines into Reno. What began as a one year stint in Reno has become a lifetime of active community service, both publicly and politically, allowing him the satisfaction of helping others in need.
