Leland S. Scott Sr. In Memoriam
LELAND S. SCOTT SR. Remembered by family, friends, former-students, and the community! It's been three-years since you received your eternal reward for your unconditional love of the Lord and your commitment to the children of Perris. You touched so many lives during your 47 years of teaching in the Perris Elementary School District. I was so proud of you when you were named "Teacher of the Year" at Nan Sanders Elementary School and when the yearbook was dedicated to you. During your 47 years in the district you taught general music, chorus, band, and elementary education. If I run into anyone today who knows patriotic songs as well as Disney tunes it's a sure thing that they were in your class. Your passion for music was evident not only in your award-winning school concert and marching bands, but also in your professional jazz trios and quartets. You were a dedicated teacher who never stopped teaching Phonics! Many times you would be approached by adults who would still address you as "Mr. Scott" and remind you that you had taught them as well as their grandchildren. And they still stop me today. You always said that teaching children was one of your greatest blessings, but I say, that one of their greatest blessings was having you as their teacher. I love you and miss you and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I miss so many things, but most of all I miss each and every day that you would say to me, "Have I told you lately that I love you?" Thank you for 35 glorious years! Love, Your Wife
