Brenda is originally from Amarillo and grew up in the panhandle of Texas in a loving, Christian family. She and her husband, Rodney, met in high school and married after attending college together at Texas Tech University. Brenda graduated with a degree in music and went on to Texas A&M to earn a degree in education. She has taught school for more than 30 years, including grades two through five in elementary school, college level computer courses and music/ theater courses. She and Rodney have four sons and one daughter-in-law: Hunter and Linzi Scott, Jackson, Harrison, and John David Scott. They attend Pinelake Baptist Church, where she enjoys leading a couples' small group with her husband Rodney. Brenda also leads a women's Bible study group as well.. “I ‘refresh and renew’ by digging in to God’s Word,” she says. “It is what sustains me. I love to go on long walks or hikes and just enjoy God’s glory. It reminds me of how God has walked with me or carried me so faithfully through my life. I also love music and am thrilled at how God uses music to penetrate deep into our hearts.” As a family, they enjoy the beach, snow skiing, camping, fishing, and traveling. The Scotts have a heart for missions and take a mission trip every summer to Montana. The Scott's have five pets: three cats named Amy, Miss Priss, and George, and two golden retrievers named Zoe and Bruno. “I feel like I was led to FPDS by the Lord,” she says. “He has blessed me and my family through the faculty and friendships we have made with all of the wonderful people here. Our school is truly a place to be fed and feel loved by our Lord. I am amazed at all that God is at work doing in the lives of our students, parents and staff."
