About Scott Niswonger
About Scott Niswonger

Few individuals have made a lasting impact on the health of a region as greatly as Scott Niswonger. This Greeneville, Tenn., native has become known for his philanthropy, made possible by the success of his transportation and logistics company, Landair Corporation.

Scott has put his name and his resources behind many worthwhile causes throughout our area, including investments in higher education at Tusculum College and investments in the arts at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville.

Arguably, his greatest investment has been in the children of our community through his ongoing support of the region’s only children’s hospital.
