Wayne Watkins is the new executive director of the Scott Scholars Program.
With the combination of philanthropic organizations, the business community, the university and of course the students, it was a very easy decision for Watkins to come to Omaha.
Watkins goal for the Scott Scholars Program is to help build on assets that are already in place; accelerate innovation, connections to the business world, the creation and development of technologies, to be engrained in the social fabric, etc.
