Facing experiences, opportunities head-on< More Stories
Living by the advice he received from his dad, Class of ’87 alumnus Scott Musgrave says to treat any job like it is the best job in the world.
“If you treat your job like it is special you end up growing and being promoted into something bigger and better. Always treat your job like it is the best thing ever,” he says.
As a graduate of the business administration diploma program, Musgrave was the first Lakeland College business student to open a new opportunity and further his education transferring his diploma credits to a university program. He earned bachelor of education and bachelor of management degrees at the University of Lethbridge, and a master of business administration at the University of Saskatchewan.
“Regardless about what you want to pursue or are excited about, if you believe in it and you truly want it to happen, with effort and energy, it will happen,” Musgrave says.
In 1995, Musgrave returned to Lloydminster to manage Musgrave Agencies Ltd. His leadership style and belief in finding and creating opportunities helped the family-oriented business expand and diversify.
Today, he is an executive and shareholder within the Musgrave group of companies, primarily a real estate and development company. In addition to this core business, the Musgrave group has ownership and provides managerial involvement for a diversified group of businesses throughout Western Canada.
He has also been involved in various industry boards including the Saskatchewan Information Services Corporation and Saskatchewan Real Estate Association. Locally, he’s volunteered with the Lloydminster Chamber of Commerce and the Lloydminster Real Estate Board. An IFR rated high altitude professional pilot, Scott Musgrave is also a member of the Lloydminster Flying Club.
Pulling from his Lakeland College experience and watching the graduates from the Lloydminster campus convocation on Friday, May 26, Musgrave says they should be proud of where they came from.
“Lakeland College is very unique and there are tons of positives the students can share; having coffee with their instructors, the size of the classes, and having the opportunity to learn in an environment where they are treated like a person and not a number.”
Musgrave was recognized as the 2017 Distinguished Alumni for the Lloydminster campus.Each year, Lakeland College salutes an alumnus from each campus. A Distinguished Alumni inductee is chosen based on their significant contributions or who have achieved major accomplishments after graduation.
