Asst. Principal, Scott Lister

Hello Enka Intermediate staff, parents, and students!  I am Scott Lister and I am thrilled to be a part of the Enka community and look forward to a great start-up in August.  I am very excited to continue to learn and grow as a leader and to support families, students, staff, and the administrative teams as a half-time Assistant Principal at Koontz Intermediate and Enka Intermediate Schools!

About me:
After receiving my B.S. degree in Communication Disorders at University of Central Florida, I acquired my Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Florida State University, then I started my Ed.S. leadership degree at University of South Florida before finishing it at Western Carolina University. 

 After graduating, I worked for 3 years in my hometown of St. Petersburg, FL, in several medical settings and at Sanders Exceptional School as a Speech-Language Pathologist.  I have been with Buncombe County schools for a total of 18 years.  I started as a Speech-Language Pathologist at Oakley Elementary School in 2002 and transitioned to work in leadership as Assistant Principal at Sand Hill-Venable Elementary in 2007.  I spent 6 years at SH-V, and have enjoyed the last 7 years as an Assistant Principal at Glen Arden Elementary. 


I met my beautiful wife Lisa at UCF in Orlando .....

... and we have 2 pretty incredible boys-  Ethan who is a high school senior at Nesbitt Discovery Academy, and he is trying to guard against Lola stealing a bite of his cupcake...

...and Nash who is a sophomore at TC Roberson living with bed head syndrome this summer during our beach trip:)

and lastly... meet "Patch" our pup who we enjoy taking for hikes in the mountains:)

It is with positive energy and enthusiasm that I look forward to serving both Enka and Koontz Intermediate School communities as a 50/50 half-time Assistant Principal.  I am very excited to continue to learn and grow as a leader in the community and to be able to support families, students, staff, and the administrative teams at both schools!  Spending half of my time at Enka Intermediate and the other half with Koontz Intermediate will present some challenges, but I will strive to support both schools with effective and impactful leadership.
