The Sandy, North Sandy and West Jordan Director Nancy Scott has been an Up with Kids! Director for 27 years. It is still a thrill for her when a child comes up and says, “My Daddy was in your class when he was a little boy.” Staying in touch with past students and parents reminds her of the amazing impact this program has on our youth.
She is proud and dedicated in her position as Director of Operations and is in charge of our successful teacher training program. The amazing and talented staff of teachers are “her girls” and she is so proud to watch them all blossom into amazing directors over the years.
Nancy’s love of music started at a very young age, when her singing siblings told her she was “tone deaf”. She begged her mother for a piano to “tune her ear” and that old upright began a beautiful journey that she still enjoys today. Nancy studied Opera through high school and college with the Prestigious Private Couch, Primo Puccinelli. She was a soloist for the International Cast of Up with People as they toured the United States and South America for two years. She toured the country again as a member of the Chamber Singers from Pasadena College and the University of Arizona.
Nancy spent many years performing throughout Southern California and recorded vocal demos for music arrangers and writers in the Los Angeles area. Now a 28 year “Native” of Utah, see loves to sing Tenor with a local Gospel Choir in her spare time. One of her greatest joys is her big beautiful family. All of her Children and Grandchildren have participated in Up with Kids! over the years. This summer, she had three Grandkids in her summer show, she co-directed with her amazing daughter; Director, Miss Lacey, and had her oldest Granddaughter as an Assistant Director. You can say, “It’s a Family Affair”
