Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- As a young man living in a small Texas town, Jack Scott felt a calling to enter public service. But it was the pulpit, not the political podium, the future assemblyman was after at the time. "I grew up in a religious home. I saw that ministers are very helpful with people," Scott said. "It gave me a feeling that whatever you do in life ought to be in service for others." So, he studied religion at what is now known as Abilene Christian University and went on to the graduate divinity program at Yale University.
