Sheridan County School District 2 announced that it will name the press box at Sheridan High School’s Homer Scott Field The Don & Jeannie Julian Press Box.
“Don Julian’s leadership has strengthened the Sheridan High School football program and made
a lasting impact on the culture of the school as a whole,” said Craig Dougherty, SCSD2
superintendent. “He is a great coach and mentor, and a great human being who cares deeply
about students, athletes and the Sheridan community. The Board of Trustees and I are pleased
to honor Susan Scott Baker and the Scott family’s request to officially name The Don & Jeannie
Julian Press Box.”
Julian served as activities director and head football coach at Sheridan High School for the last 11 years.
During his time at the district, Sheridan High School’s athletic teams won 12 state
championships, including five state football titles. Julian was also instrumental in raising $2.75
million dollars for activities and facilities expansion.
“Susan’s sons played football for Coach Julian,” said Homer Scott Jr. “She logged a lot of miles
watching them compete and grow – and became one of the program’s top supporters. Susan
wants to honor Don and Jeanie for their contributions.”
The Julian legacy is much more than five state football championships in 11 years. “The
life-lessons he has passed on will pay huge dividends for many generations to come,” said Scott.
Scott also said that Jeannie had been a loyal friend and continued to be a dedicated and
compassionate caregiver for Susan throughout her extended illness.
Susan Scott Baker and the Scott Family are paying all costs associated with the naming.
Sheridan High School will announce the unveiling date later this year. For decades the Scott
Family has donated more than $1 million dollars to Sheridan County School District #2
programs. These contributions have supported student activities, as well as the expansion and
enhancement of the Sheridan High School Scott Fitness Center, locker rooms and
