Deacon Mary V. Scott has been a steadfast pillar in the foundation and growth of Calvert County Baptist Church (CCBC), exemplifying unwavering dedication to both the congregation and the wider community. From the inception of CCBC, Deac. Scott, alongside Elder Nate, played an integral role in its establishment, being among the select few families entrusted with the monumental task of nurturing the church.

Their commitment was palpable from the early days when Sunday Service unfolded in the modest confines of a Super 8 Motel conference room. Deac. Scott, along with her family, tirelessly assisted in setting up the makeshift sanctuary, ferrying folding chairs in their conversion van, and ensuring every technical aspect was meticulously attended to by Elder Nate. Their selflessness extended beyond Sundays, with their basement serving as a storage hub for church equipment during the week.

Deac. Scott's involvement extended beyond logistics; she extended warmth as a choir member and greeter, embodying the spirit of inclusivity that defines CCBC. As the church traversed various locations, Deac. Scott and Elder Nate remained steadfast, ensuring the seamless transition and operation of CCBC.

Their dedication did not stop within the church walls; Deac. Scott actively engaged in community outreach initiatives, spearheading endeavors like community car washes, and the MOVE Ministry. Through their involvement, CCBC became a beacon of hope and compassion, reaching beyond its congregational boundaries to uplift the broader community.

As CCBC burgeoned, Deac. Scott's sphere of influence expanded, encompassing multifaceted roles within the ministry, from vacation bible school to pastoral care and finance team contributions. Her unwavering commitment to congregational care, outreach, and service epitomizes the ethos of CCBC, enriching the lives of both its members and the community at large. Deac. Scott's legacy serves as a testament to the transformative power of faith-driven service and community engagement, embodying the spirit of Black History Month and the enduring legacy of resilience and empowerment.  


ELDER Nathaniel Scott from his courageous upbringing in a predominantly white neighborhood to his pioneering role as one of the first black individuals in the nuclear instrument maintenance shop at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Elder Nate's journey exemplifies resilience and determination.

His tenure at the power plant saw him not only excel in his technical roles but also break barriers as the first black supervisor in the instrument maintenance shop. Transitioning to supervising the electrical and instrument maintenance shops, he demonstrated exceptional leadership, prioritizing the safety and well-being of his team while navigating the complexities of a hazardous work environment.

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Elder Nate's dedication to Calvert County Baptist Church is equally remarkable.

As a founding member, he embraced multiple responsibilities, from running the A/V ministry to serving as treasurer and later becoming the church's first deacon. His commitment extended to facility maintenance and even greeting congregants at the door, showcasing his selflessness and unwavering devotion to the church community.

Today, as an Elder of CCBC, Elder Nate continues to inspire and uplift others through his wisdom, experience, and steadfast faith. His legacy serves as a testament to the transformative power of perseverance and service, making him a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations to come.

His leadership and expertise garnered him respect and admiration, paving the way for future generations of minority officers.

Transitioning to the Maryland Park Service (MPS) Rangers and later the Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP), Hawk continued to break new ground, becoming the first African American to hold the positions of Assistant Superintendent (Lt. Colonel) and Deputy Superintendent (Lt. Colonel) respectively. His visionary leadership and tireless advocacy for diversity and inclusion reshaped law enforcement agencies, fostering environments of equity and opportunity for all.

Beyond his professional accolades, Hawk's commitment to community service and mentorship is unparalleled. A devoted husband, father, and active member of Calvert County Baptist Church, he embodies the principles of servant leadership, leaving an enduring legacy of empowerment and inspiration.
