To hear Scott and Cathie Davis talk about it, contributing to the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business is just a matter of supporting a mission they feel is important to Utah and the students the university serves.
Scott said they feel passionately about the university and its efforts to reach out to rural Utah as a land-grant institution. That mission of serving rural Utah is also important to Scott’s company, he said. He is the president and CEO of Mountain West Small Business Finance, a private non-profit company that administers the SBA 504 Loan Program.
“We believe in what the Huntsman School of Business stands for,” Scott said. “We support its emphasis on ethical leadership and its efforts to reach out to the rural parts of the state. From our company’s perspective, that’s a high priority. For us personally, we just love Utah State and want to be a part of it.”
Scott’s company has donated to the Huntsman School of Business and he and Cathie have also given personally to the organization. Scott also donates his time by serving on the National Advisory Board.
“There are some really amazing people on that board,” Scott said. “They contribute so much. It’s a real honor to be a part of the group.”
Scott attended Utah State University but graduated from the University of Utah. Three of the Davis’s four children also attended USU, and two graduated from the university.
