Sports anchor Stuart Scott’s legacy is still going strong through his daughters Taelor (20) and Sydni Scott (16), who continue to honor the sports media icon.
Taelor and Sydni Scott and Dear World collaborated on a video love letter about their father to mark the one year anniversary of his passing on January 4, 2015.
The Scotts became friends Dear World’s founder Robert X. Fogarty after he photographed Stuart Scott for Dear World in its signature message on skin portrait style.
The portrait eventually became the cover image for Every Day I Fight, Scott’s memoir. In the distinctive Dear World portrait style where each person shares a message on their skin, now Taelor and Sydni have created a tribute to their father.
Their latest tribute, “Dear Stuart Scott”, will be released at 6 AM EST, Monday January 4, 2016 at dearworld.me/
