Try "xterm -e sh sc.script".

It can be frustrating to run a program that displays output and then exits under xterm.  For instance, xterm -e /bin/ls will exit almost immediately, so you won't have the time to read the directory listing.

If you're doing SH programming, as recommended by Syrinx, I would suggest that the last line of your script be something like:
echo -n "Press <RETURN> to exit"
read dummy
