Scott Elliott

Killingworth, Connecticut

Scott Elliott, 18, of Killingworth, Conn., a senior at Xavier High School, is the founder and president of “1BigCircle,” a free social and fitness club for teens and adults with disabilities. Inspired by the social isolation of his brother, who has Down syndrome, Scott secured the support of sponsors, high school volunteers and Special Olympics to launch a club that could meet on weekends to promote friendship and wellness; within a year, it became one of the largest and most active Unified Sports Fitness Clubs in Connecticut.
