Johnny Scott The Deaf Humanitarian

Johnny Scott was a very popular gentleman in the 80's. Not only was he popular, he was a true humanitarian. He's cared for the welfare of scores of deaf people in Orange County. He was a great feller to work with at our agency in the last years of his life.

His biggest impact was getting about a dozen hotels along Beach Blvd and the Knotts Berry Farm area to rent to deaf people at $150 a month.


Can you imagine how big of a help Johnny was? He had a big heart for the deaf community and he was a true humanitarian. He did that by keeping a lot of deaf people off the streets.

Our agency offers our lasting gratitude and eternal respect to him for his impact on the lives of hundreds of deaf people on Orange County, California. We do that by hosting a chess tournament under his name. He's loved chess.
