Connecting with our Vibrant Clubs to the World

Peter Scott

Peter is a long-time Arlington resident who began his professional career as a Financial Advisor for Edward Jones in Cleburne in 1983, where he was a member of the Rotary Club of Cleburne.  He became a Partner at Edward Jones in 1986.  Although he retired in November 2016, Peter remains a Limited Partner of the firm.  Peter married Lynn in 1985 just prior to her graduation from the University of Texas School of Law.  The Scotts moved from Cleburne to Arlington in 1988, where daughter Kristin was born in 1990 and son Joseph was born in 1992.  Grandson Hudson joined the family on his mother Kristin’s birthday in January of 2018, making Peter the proudest grandfather ever! 

After moving his Edward Jones Investments office from Cleburne to Arlington in 1993, Peter joined the Rotary Club of Arlington and immediately became involved in fundraising for the Webb School scholarship program that later received recognition from the White House.  He is Past President of his home club and has served multiple years as President of the Arlington Rotary Foundation.  Prior to becoming DG 2019-2020, he served as Assistant Governor for four years.

Peter also serves on other civic organizations including the Arlington Chamber of Commerce Public Policy Committee, the Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau Board of Directors, and the Downtown Arlington Management Corporation Board.  He also serves as VP of his Homeowners Association, is Immediate Past President of the Theatre Arlington Board and is active in other civic affairs. 

Peter looks forward to leading your customer-service-driven District 5790 team throughout 2019-2020.  Our only goal is to provide whatever assistance our District can muster so that your club can grow in strength, relevance and vibrancy.  Peter and Lynn wish everyone a wonderful and productive year of service, and are truly committed to helping all clubs achieve their greatest goals.  Rotary Connects the World!
