April Scott

Director of Small Business Center at Brunswick Community College

Newspa­pers and magazines Scott regu­larly reads for work or pleasure include Business North Carolina, WILMA mag­azine, Greater Wilmington Business Jour­nal and National Association for Community College Entrepre­neurship.

Favorite websites and blogs include Pin­terest and GrantStation.

“I love the inspiration Pinterest provides for projects, recipes and new techniques,” she said.
“I have found myself a frequent flyer of the software Grant Station which gives me information on available grants.”

The Food Network is Scott’s favorite channel.

“I love trying new recipes, learning how to use fresh herbs, and lately I'm taking an interest in grilling.”

Scott has recently set up movie nights in her neighborhood.

“I'm a fan of the movie theater and because we have not been able to visit theaters, I set up movie nights on my cul-de-sac, which my neighbors seem to love,” Scott said. “We all bring our own chairs, snacks and enjoy a movie while practicing social distancing.”

One favorite read is Essence

“Recent issues of Es­sence magazine have done a great job providing tips and useful information on how to stay healthy physically and mentally during this isolating time,” Scott said. “I've also read its great arti­cles related to small businesses, grant opportunities, ways to stay engaged with your clients.”
