The Layton International Scholarship will assist college students who will be studying outside of the U.S. with preference given to Asia.
Scott Layton, the son of Floyd and Judy Layton, grew up in Higgins Lake and is a 1997 graduate of Roscommon High School. He currently lives in Singapore and is IBM’s Director of Audit and Investigations for Asia Pacific, Greater China Group and Japan. Layton feels strongly about studying abroad, “I remember how my life was changed on my first solo international trip when I was 19”, said Layton. “I’ve since never looked back, having done 4 semesters abroad while in university and having spent almost 8 years of my career now in Asia. The primary goal then of this is broadening Roscommon youth’s minds culturally and making them more citizens of the world.”
