you can use Pivot or just do a union like this

select EmpID , [Year], 2008Scores  ScoreValue
from Table1
union all
select EmpID , [Year], 2009Scores  ScoreValue
from Table1
union all
select EmpID , [Year], 2010Scores  ScoreValue
from Table1

union
select empid, Year = '2009', 2009Scores as ScoreValue
where empid = 2
union

Try unpivot.
select EmpID,REPLACE([Year],'Score','') [Year],Score
  from your_table 
 unpivot (Score for [Year] in ([2008Score],[2009Score],[2010Score])) p

Open in new window

declare @table table(EmpID int,[2008Score] int,[2009Score] int,[2010Score] int)
insert @table values(2,12,14,18)
select EmpID,REPLACE([Year],'Score','') [Year],Score
  from @table 
 unpivot (Score for [Year] in ([2008Score],[2009Score],[2010Score])) p
/*
EmpID	Year	Score
2	2008	12
2	2009	14
2	2010	18
*/
