Rotarian of the Week: Scott McClanahan
Posted By rotary
Last week Rotarian Greg Holt took part in the Club’s new program of interviewing Club members to help Tuscaloosa Rotarians get to know everyone a little better. Greg introduced Rotarian Scott McClanahan. Scott and his wife Gina have two children, a son Marcus who is 2, and a daughter, Larisey who is one. Scott is the proud Uncle to his sister Emily’s children who were adopted from Hattie and China. Scott is a founding member of the WHMZ Group at Morgan Stanley where Scott is a Senior VP and Financial Advisor. He is the incoming President of the YMCA, which will involve running the Building Campaign for the New YMCA. Scott is best know around Tuscaloosa from his days of playing Center Field for the Alabama Baseball Team from 1998-2002.
Scott has lived in Germany, Spain, and Michigan in addition to Alabama. His baseball career actually began when his family lived in Germany. He played for a European Team that qualified for the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
Scott Graduated from Hartselle High School and signed a baseball scholarship to play for the Crimson Tide. Sounds logical, except his parents and sister attended Auburn University. Scott’s dad pitched for the 1976 Auburn team that won the SEC Championship and went to the College World Series. He and his dad became one of only a few Father/Son combos to ever play in Omaha.
In 2002, Scott was drafted by the Yankees and played in Staten Island for a year before returning to Tuscaloosa. Still very competitive, he plays Tennis and Squash. He has won Squash tournaments all of the United States.
