Hi, my name is Scully!
I was born on a rookery on Longboat Key, Florida. I later flocked east to Bird Island at Nathan Benderson Park. That’s where I fell in love with rowing. Every day, I would sit in the trees and watch these fast boats fly by me. One day, while trying to catch some perch, a man in a single scull approached me and asked if I’d like to learn how to row. The rest is history. I’ve been able to spread my wings and learn the importance of hard work and dedication.
