Marquis Scott

Twenty-year-old Marquis Rory Scott, former Northeast High School Football All-Star in St. Petersburg, Fl, was murdered on September 17, 2019, by people he once considered as friends.

To overcome their grief, his family created the non-profit, “Quis for Life” in his honor.

“Quis for Life” gave birth to the “Black St. Pete Pledge,” “The Five Keys to End Gun Violence Among Youth” training and “The St. Pete Youth Pledge.”

Through their faith in God, the Scott family chooses love and forgiveness.
