The Squire of Haw River

Record #:
W. Kerr Scott, building upon his family’s tradition of public service in Alamance County, initiated progress throughout his home state and in the world, some of which generated controversy. As governor and senator, his accomplishments included 150,000 new electric connections for rural areas and advocating for a world food bank. His appointments of the first woman to the Superior Court and black man to the State Board of Education reflected ideals considered radical by some political rivals.
