Scott Reimers | An Unselfish Public Servant
Scott Reimers earned a Master’s in Public Administration from UIS in 1995. He currently serves the Public Good as Assistant Vice President for State Legislative Affairs for the Illinois State Medical Society.
On May 10, 2018, Scott received the prestigious Rail Splitter Public Service Award from the local chapter of the American Society for Public Administration. The Rail Splitter award honors a public servant who exhibits the highest standard of excellence, dedication and accomplishment. According to one nominator, since beginning his career in state government, “Scott has proven to be a bridge-builder and a voice of reason…. He is the epitome of an unselfish public servant.” Upon receiving the award, he challenged those in attendance to choose a student to mentor and make it their business to assist that student as he or she moves from academics into a public affairs profession. Scott is pictured at right with his wife Lori.
