Meet Scott Pohlson, the VCDC Board Chair!
Scott has been in and around Vermillion since 2009 with a short decision to leave life as a Vermillionaire from 2012 to 2014 to be closer to family in Des Moines, IA. He and his family realized quickly that they needed to get back to the good life and have been in Vermillion ever since!
He spent time at both Coe College (IA) and Creighton University (NE) for his undergraduate and graduate degrees in business administration. He serves as the Vice President of Enrollment, Marketing and University Relations with the University of South Dakota (USD). He always says that he has the best job at USD as his role is working on reloading the student talent that comes to USD every single year. In addition to reloading student talent, he also works with a very talented marketing and university relations team on positioning USD as a leader in the region.
This year marks Scott’s fifth year on the VCDC Board of Directors. His family refers to themselves as the ‘Pohlson Circus’ as he and his wife Amy try to keep the chaos of raising three kids – Olivia (8), Will (6), and Henry (4) to a minimal disruption for the Vermillion community. Will Pohlson holds the forever title of “Prentis Plunge’s First In” when during the first reveal for the community pool, he walked right into the pool. Safe to say the Pohlson Circus enjoys the support of this great community in so many ways.
