Scott Gilpin

Sunnyslope High School

Unified Sports - Coach of the Year

Scott Gilpin is a science teacher at Sunnyslope High School and began the Unified Sports program over two years ago. His passion and leadership have helped guide his teams to great success, including Sunnyslope’s Unified Badminton team placing second at the 2019 AIA Unified Badminton State Championship. Under Scott’s tutelage, Sunnyslope’s Unified program won Glendale Union High School District Group of the Year award for the 2018-19 school year and also received National Banner Recognition as a Unified Champion School by ESPN and Special Olympics in 2019. Scott ensures that his teams are recognized at the sports assemblies among their peers and also hosts Spread the Word: Inclusion Campaigns each March on campus to promote social inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Scott has transformed the lives of athletes, partners, and colleagues at Sunnyslope High School. His dedication and commitment to meaningful inclusion bridge the gap for understanding and inclusion for all in the community. He holds high expectations for all involved to reach their maximum potential and display the upmost sportsmanship. As one of his colleagues said, “It takes a village to raise a child; it took Mr. Gilpin to show the village that these students matter!”
