MEET SCOTT FRANZ
Scott Franz graduated from Tabor College in 1988 with a Business Administration/Economics degree. In 1998 Scott completed a Master’s degree in Non-Profit Administration from The University of Notre Dame. During his time at Tabor he played 4 years of soccer and sang 3 years with the choir. Scott and his wife Pam have 3 children, a senior in High School, a sophomore in High School, and a 7th grader. His best experience at Tabor was when he had the chance to go to Europe with 27 other Tabor students during January. He remembers that winter being one of the coldest he had ever experienced. Scott enjoyed his 4 years at Tabor and now he is able to give back and help other students receive a similar experience as he had. His advice to current business students is to not limit what you think you may want to do after graduation. Scott has worked entirely in the non-profit sector and would not have thought about how his prior jobs prepared him from what he is currently doing as Tabor College’s Director of Financial Aid.
