Scott Carson cheers for the underdog. He likes helping struggling students find their way.

“I’ve always been drawn to students who came from rougher situations. The ones who are the hardest to love are the ones who need it the most. That’s just their defense mechanism,” he said. “That’s why you have to work together and take time to build trust. Once you have it, they know whatever I’m telling them is in their best interest. That’s always satisfying.”

Carson will have plenty of opportunities to work with those students, as he takes the reins as Iola High School principal next year. He has spent the past three years as the school’s assistant principal and athletic director.
