Backed by expertise in technical illustration and management, Margaret Scott thrived as an aerospace company executive. She started at the very bottom of the chain, but she loved aviation and knew she had something to give. Over the next 47 years, Ms. Scott steadily worked her way to the top. She garnered a reputation for her tenacity and skill, which propelled her to roles like flight test analyst at North American Aviation, graphics artist at North America Rockwell, illustrations project coordinator at Rockwell International, and head of the Graphics Art Department in the Los Angeles Subdivision of El Segundo. Her final position before retiring in 1990 was project manager at the L.A. Basin Data Services Center of Rockwell International.
Ms. Scott prepared for her endeavors by studying at L.A. City College from 1947 to 1951 and El Camino College in 1973. She also served the latter as a member of the Trade Advisory Committee. In recognition of her efforts, Ms. Scott was featured in three editions of Who’s Who of American Women and two of Who’s Who in Finance and Industry. If she could offer some advice to the younger generations, it would be to persevere and work hard.
