In 1995 he graduated from Southern High School.

His dad and mom are Allen and Rhonda Scott who live in Grundy Center, Iowa.

Chad has two brothers, Corey (Melissa), and Caleb who live in Grundy Center, Iowa. Corey and Caleb are both employed for independent contractors and Melissa is a stay at home mom and employed part time in an optometrist office.

Corey and Melissa have two daughters, Kennedy and Ansley.

Chad is a member of St. Patricks Church in Raritan.

His hobbies are hunting and spending time with family.

One of Chad's favorite vacations was two years ago when he flew to Jamaica for a family wedding. That was his first time out of the states. Each year he also goes snowmobiling with family. Chad said, "I go anywhere there is snow!"

When he was asked what interested him in farming he replied, "Both of my grandfathers farmed and I knew at an early age that was what I wanted to spend my life doing."

He is a member of the Tri-County Cattlemen Association and the Henderson County Fair Board. He said, "I enjoy working on the fair board because it takes a lot of help with all the activities." He also is an Eagle Scout.
