Antonio Scott began his journey as a non-profit professional after graduating from Howard University with a BBA in Information Systems. He saw the value of grassroots work as a special projects assistant and on-ground organizer in multiple cities around the country with the People for the American Way (PFAW) organization. His role at PFAW then propelled him into more local grassroots work in the Washington, DC area with several prominent non-profit organizations in many dynamic positions from program instructor, to project manager, to operations director.
These various roles led Antonio to become the very first Executive Director of a small non-profit organization named “dcbaseball.org” which he led a rebranding and restructuring process for the organization to be renamed “Sports Management Academics and Recreational Training (S.M.A.R.T.)”. Under his leadership, the organization was able to create several Out-of-School Time (OST) programs, primarily for middle school and high school students on a path to becoming collegiate athletes.The programs were implemented at multiple DC area schools and recreation centers serving over 1000 students during a decades-long run before the organizations dissolvement.
Antonio has continued to adapt his love of sports, especially baseball, with his love of grassroots organizing and programming as a Board Member of the DC Grays Baseball Club where he served as the summer collegiate baseball team’s General Manager from 2012 – 2019.
