Omega Chapter Notice: Stuart Scott

Brother Stuart Scott

Omega Chapter Notice

Brother Stuart Scott [Mu Zeta, '84], an anchor at ESPN and a cancer fighter, has transitioned into Omega Chapter, Alpha Phi Alpha’s chapter of sweet rest at the age of 49.

Although he was born in Chicago, Brother Scott spent his formative years with his family in North Carolina. Later, he would attend the University of North Carolina, where he joined Alpha Phi Alpha and worked at the student radio station. After graduating with a degree in speech communication in 1987, Stuart was hired by a TV station in Florence, S.C., and eventually joined ESPN in 1993 to help launch ESPN2. In November 2007, Brother Scott was diagnosed with cancer and has since become a worldwide icon, showing people that you can live with cancer on your own terms. While accepting the ESPYS Jimmy V Award for Perseverance, Brother Scott summed up his battle against cancer with the same power and grace with which he used to fight it:

"When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live."

Arrangements are pending.

Please pray for the family of Brother Stuart Scott. It is because of brothers like him advocating for our communities that we are in fact the College of Friendship, the University of Brotherly Love and the School for the Better Making of Men.
