Raymond Scott celebrated 55 years of service with Dominion Energy on Dec. 4, 2023

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Raymond Scott learned a long time ago that you don’t always have to be the person in charge to be a leader.

This December, the 76-year-old Mount Pleasant native celebrated 55 years of service with Dominion Energy.

“I learned to keep moving and stay happy and everything else will take care of itself,” Scott said. “I wake up feeling good every day, and I’m thankful for my health and my ability to work.”

Scott grew up in Mount Pleasant, a few blocks from his workplace at the Dominion Energy facility on Chuck Dawley Boulevard, a local operations hub that has served the community for decades.

He spent two years in the Army and served in Vietnam. When he returned home to the Lowcountry, he immediately began looking for a job to help support his family. He heard from a friend that South Carolina Electric and Gas was hiring, so went to the Charleston location on Meeting Street and applied in person. The manager said they only had one position available, and it was in the warehouse. He took it.

“I was determined to make the best out of it,” he said.

True to his word, Scott held multiple positions in electric and gas operations during his years with the company. Currently, working as a senior material handler for the Mount Pleasant, West Ashley and Hollywood locations, he is responsible for maintaining the inventory and equipment necessary to keep the lights on for thousands of customers in the East Cooper region and beyond.

To commemorate his more than five decades of dedicated service to the company, its customers and his community, Dominion Energy South Carolina President Keller Kissam officially declared Dec. 4, 2023, as Raymond Scott Day.

“Raymond is a natural born leader who is known for mentoring others and rising to the occasion,” Kissam said. “We appreciate the example he sets for all of us.”

And while he admits his 55 years haven’t always been easy, he is thankful for the wisdom and talent of his friends and colleagues.

“I love my job. I feel privileged to work with them every day,” he added.

Scott also says he has no plans to retire. “I basically live one day at a time, making the best of every moment, and bringing as much joy to others as I can. That’s my motivation,” he said with a smile. “My promise is not to be here beyond 90 years old.”
