Introducing our Keynote Speaker, Winner of the season 2 Tough as Nails Competition, Scott D. Henry!
Scott D. Henry is the 2021 champion of CBS’s hit television show, Tough as Nails, a competition celebrating hardworking Americans. A Construction Superintendent from Utah, Scott has also become a TikTok sensation with over 2 million followers. He describes himself as a “goofy and positive” person who has made stomping out bullying a top priority with his “Be Better” campaign and support of Stomp Out Bullying, www.stompoutbullying.org.
In his 20-year construction career, Scott worked his way up into a super role without a college degree. He works in the geotechnical field, stopping landslides, lifting buildings, and repairing dams. One of his most exciting work projects was stabilizing the landslide on the Ocoee River in Tennessee.
Scott is also a husband, father and stepfather, and describes that as his greatest accomplishment. In fact, he became a TikTok sensation because of a simple favor for his stepdaughter. He’s also an accomplished basketball player, being named the 1998 5A MVP for basketball and is a former First Team All-Conference collegiate basketball player for Idaho State.
We are honored to welcome Scott D. Henry to the Ohio ACTE Innovation and Impact Annual Conference! Learn more about our keynote speaker here: https://scottdhenrybebetter.com/about.
