The Lighthouse at The Harbor has been dedicated as the Scott Self Memorial Lighthouse. Scott Self gave so much to Rockwall since moving here in 1977. The entrepreneur owner of Sail with Scott and Pro Soap was a lifelong accomplished sailor who founded Dallas Race Week, a premier regatta spanning four decades on Lake Ray Hubbard.

His résumé included placing in the top 10 of every major class of the National Sailing Championships, and he also captained three separate trips through the Panama Canal. While he travelled the world, he always came back home to Rockwall.

Scott was passionate about giving back to his community. He served as a Rockwall Volunteer Firefighter, Rockwall Mayor and City Councilmember, Rockwall County Commissioner and Treasurer, and more. In addition, he served as Commodore of Chandler’s Landing Yacht Club, as well as holding key leadership positions for many area nonprofits, including the Rockwall YMCA, Helping Hands of Rockwall County, Rockwall United Way, Rockwall Rotary, and the Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce.

Scott Self has indeed left a legacy of service to his community. Pictured here is Scott’s family: wife Jan, son Billy, and daughter Chandler.
