About Scott Hamilton, Our Keynote Speaker

This year’s speaker for our Engaging Community Reception is the most recognized male figure skating star in the world – Scott Hamilton. He has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame, and is a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame.

In 1984, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Sarajevo, and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as an analyst/commentator, performer, producer, and best-selling author (Fritzy Finds a Hat, 2020, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, 2018; The Great Eight, 2009; Landing It, 1999). He further inspires others as a speaker & humanitarian, and as a cancer & pituitary brain tumor survivor.

After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming a survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring Program. Events such as “Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer” and “An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends” galas fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient harm.

He also is the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at the Ford Ice Centers in Antioch, TN and Bellevue, TN, where he may frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate students and sharing his love of skating.

In what little free time remains, Scott can be found on the golf course and enjoys spending time with his wife, Tracie, and four children at their home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Join us for an unforgettable evening – Scott will speak about his personal journey to greatness, weaving in successful aging, how to live life to the fullest, embrace change, and promote wellness as one moves through life facing challenges, obstacles and life’s milestones.
