Meet 2015 KC Magazine Most Wanted Auction’s Scott Long

Scott Long

Managing Member at Long & Robinson, LLC

With his own three kids in college, Scott Long has turned his attention to a new kid: his Little, 12-year-old Carlos. Long’s involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters doesn’t end there; he’s working with the organization to create a pilot program where kids can access tutors at their school for academic assistance. He’s also getting involved at the community level in the Crossroads Arts District to make it a better place to live and work.

“Kansas City is again coming into its own and it’s completely driven by the people here,” Long says. “I’ve been coming to the Crossroads regularly since 2008 and have lived there for going on three years. The transformation has been as rapid as it’s been spectacular, and it’s driven by people with vision. I’ve seen the city pull together to make things happen and I love being a part of it.”

Inspired by his own mentor, Dr. Tim Bengston, who encouraged and worked with Long throughout his time at the University of Kansas’ School of Journalism, Long now aspires to motivate the people in his own life.
