Andy's Rest. Scorecard: Server of the Week Scotty Scheno

By Andy Wise - bio | email

MEMPHIS (WMC TV) - SERVER OF THE WEEK:  Scotty Scheno, East End Grill, 7547 Hwy. 64/Stage Rd., East Memphis/Bartlett, 901-937-1392,

Scotty Scheno's service goes beyond pouring a beer or plating an appetizer.

Scheno's brand of service is servant leadership. Building relationships. Lifting others up.

Bartlett's John Wallach nominated Scheno as Scorecard Server of the Week for something Scheno did last summer after the death of East End Grill cook Travis Williams.

Williams was murdered, shot dead while leaving his North Memphis home for work. The beloved cook's death devastated East End Grill's staff and Williams's mother, Blondine Bello.

"Travis was a good young man, trying to make a better life for himself," said Wallach.

Scheno took it upon himself to organize a fund-raiser for Williams' family on the fourth of July.

He marshaled volunteers, wheeled in smokers and sweated out Independence Day over a few hundred pounds of pork.

"I was with Scotty as he sweated it out on July 4th cooking pulled pork over smokers outside and handed over a pretty substantial check to Travis's mother," Wallach said.

The check was for more than $2,300.

"He was a big, big help for us," said a grateful Bello. "A great big help. We really appreciate him."

"He's a wonderful employee, with a heart to do things like this for people," said Scheno's boss, Christian Georgi. "Great guy. Big heart."

"We're all family here," said Scheno. "I feel like I'm just doing my job."

Just doing his job, putting colleagues and customers ahead of himself.
