TB Lightning 'Community Hero' Scott Owens

In recognition of his military service and advocacy for hiring disabled veterans, Scott Owens was honored as a Community Hero by the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation, which salutes unsung heroes and donates $50,000 to the charity of their choice. In recognition of our role in transforming him from a wounded, combat-stressed infantryman contemplating suicide to a job placement specialist with VA and celebrated warrior ambassador, Scott directed the $50,000 to the Abilities Foundation.
