Scott Trudeau started working at Lawrence Tech in 2002 as the Assistant Director of Student Activities. He helped triple Lawrence Tech's sport offerings in clubs and intramurals as well as develop a comprehensive fitness program on campus in his first 5 years.
Trudeau took the reigns from LTU Hall of Famer Al McLaughlin and became the Athletic Director in 2010. At that time the department consisted of himself and an Assistant Director. In his first year as the Athletic Director, he made the push into the NAIA and transitioned 5 club teams into varsity programs after almost a 50 year hiatus from athletics at Lawrence Tech. After a year as a member of the Association of Independent Institutions within the NAIA, Lawrence Tech became members of the Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference and rolled out another 7 teams in 2012.
Scott was named Athletic Director of the year by his fellow WHAC athletic directors in 2013-2014. Trudeau now oversees 24 teams competing yearly and recently announced the addition of football to start in the fall of 2018. The athletic department has grown from a department of 2 full time employees to over 40 employees in just 6 years under his direction.
Scott is a proud graduate of Central Michigan University, “Fire up Chips.” He completed his undergraduate work in Sports Studies, Business Administration, and Coaching, followed by a graduate degree in Sports Administration. He worked with the CMU football, track, and softball teams during his time at Central as well as spent 4 seasons coaching football at the High School level in Mt. Pleasant.
Trudeau and his wife Jessica grew up on Lake Huron and now reside in Commerce Twp with their son Jack. Spending time with family, relaxing on the lake, fishing, and golfing are some of his favorite past times.
