BUFFALO, N.Y. — David Scott of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center was recognized with a special award at the FruitBelt Coalition’s 8th Annual Recognition Banquet earlier this month. Scott, who serves as Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the Buffalo-based cancer center, was surprised with the Lighthouse of Partners Award at the event.

The FruitBelt Coalition, whose focus is “Planting seeds to grow communities,” is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving quality of life for those who live in and around the Fruit Belt, a residential neighborhood with a rich history and located near Roswell Park’s main campus.

By partnering with such organizations as the FruitBelt Coalition, Buffalo Urban League, Buffalo Employment and Training Center (BETC), Black Chamber of Commerce of Western New York and Belle Center to offer numerous career-development workshops and job fairs, Scott has led efforts to not only build and retain a diverse workforce and increase supplier diversity at Roswell Park, but to help expand good job opportunities for all Western New Yorkers. In selecting him to receive this distinction, the Coalition highlighted his dedication and valued partnership in support of the organization’s mission.

Scott has often been recognized for his professional accomplishments and community involvement. This latest distinction follows previous awards from 1490 Enterprises Inc., Utopian Euphoria and the World HRD Congress.
