Scott Herring has been a part of the Skyward story at Lehigh Career and Technical Institute from its beginning. A data support specialist, Scott was a part of the leadership team in 2007 when LCTI migrated to Skyward. Since then, he has been responsible for ensuring everyone is comfortable using the software and understands its influence on their job duties. He knows the software well; as one of his coworkers put it, Scott is a “walking encyclopedia” of Skyward information.

The list of Scott’s accomplishments using Skyward is too long to list here. But whether he’s using Skyward to automate attendance notices, developing import processes that save hours in scheduling 1,500 students, assisting parents over the phone, or working with Skyward to use the Standards Gradebook to track students’ mastery of CTE standards, Scott is always striving to improve the experience of others. He is never one to become complacent; whenever Skyward releases a new feature, Scott considers how he can use it to tackle problems. In the words of Josh Herzog, data manager at LCTI, “[Scott] is not one to sit on his laurels when a project is complete. His philosophy is ‘As long as Skyward keeps adding features, I've got to find a way to continue to make things faster and more efficient for the staff so they [can] . . . invest their time directly into the education of our students.’”

Not only has Scott been an excellent resource for LCTI, but as member of the Pennsylvania Skyward Steering Committee, he has helped many other schools in their transition to Skyward as well.

Scott is the longest serving active member of the Keystone State Skyward User Group. He has presented at user group conferences and at iCon.
