To make it better or to make it grow. That’s what Princeton Police Chief Tom Root says Jack Scott wanted for the city. Scott, referred to by many as Mr. Princeton, died at his home on Tuesday at age 85. He served overseas during world war two and was stationed in Texas during the Korean conflict. Scott and Root co-chaired the committee that developed the Flags of Freedom near Interstate 80's Exit 56 in Princeton. Root says their friendship blossomed during their work on the memorial. Princeton native and Illinois State student Kyle Burrows was on the project committee. He says as a young man, Scott played an influential role in his life, teaching him how dedication and hard work pay off. Root and Scott met weekly with the dirty dozen, a local coffee club. He says it won’t be the same without Mr. Princeton.
