Scott Martin, parks director for The Parklands of Floyds Fork, a 4,000 acre urban park in Louisville, Kentucky, credits his time at Boise State and in Idaho for helping him discover the importance of parks for economic development and growth, along with helping his develop his outlook on life. Martin earned his bachelor of political science and master of public administration degrees from Boise State.
