Namesake: William Kerr Scott (1896-1958), Governor of North Carolina (1948-1953) and U.S. Senator (1954-1958), known to his friends as 'The Squire of Haw River,' was primarily a farmer.

Upon his election as Governor of the State in 1948, he introduced his "Go Forward" program. State surplus revenue was put to work to overcome the deficit in State services. With the conclusion of his administration, Governor Scott could review a long list of accomplishments. Among projects initiated and completed: 14,810 miles of road paved; 8,000 new classrooms; 175 gymnasiums; and 350 school lunchrooms had been constructed.

After Scott graduated from State College receiving a BS in agriculture, he served one year as an agent for emergency food production for the US Department of Agriculture; and in 1918-19 in the Field Artillery, US Army. In July 1919, he married Mary Elizabeth White and settled in Alamance County. He served as farm agent for that county, later as Master of the North Carolina State Grange, and in 1936 was elected State Commissioner of Agriculture, which post he resigned to run for Governor.
