As an engineer, Scott Hart focuses on processes and practices that can be implemented to ensure the company has successful products. He brings the same methodical approach to the Perkins Local School District Board of Education.
“I want to ensure that our students can develop to their full potential,” said Mr. Hart, who was appointed to the school board in January 2018 and re-elected in 2019.
He is a senior engineer at Tenneco Research and Development in Milan, and leads project development from generating tooling, part creation, validation testing, and production product launch.
“I do my part as a school board member to gather as much information as possible to ensure that the processes developed to aid our students in academics and athletics can be sustained to ensure future success and growth,” Mr. Hart said.
He and his wife, Candice, have a son, Whitten, who is in 4th grade at Meadowlawn Intermediate School, and a daughter, Ireland, who is in the 7th grade Briar Middle School. The Harts’ children are active in sports, and he is involved as a coach with their athletic endeavors.
“My children are the one thing that inspired me to become a board member,” Mr. Hart said. “I wanted to be involved in the process to ensure that Perkins Schools remains a sought-after educational institution for my children’s future.”
Mr. Hart, a Sandusky native, is a graduate of Sandusky High School and has a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Toledo.
