Starr Walton Hurley’s involvement in the Olympic Games goes back to her role as a Torch Bearer in the Olympic Winter Games in Squaw Valley. She competed on the U.S. Olympic Ski Team at Innsbruck, won the U.S. Junior and Senior National Championships, and was voted Skier of the Year by the Winter Sports Writers Association.
Hurley's accomplishments extend far beyond the ski slope‚ however. She is president of the Hamilton, New Zealand—Sacramento, California, Sister City Organization and a member of the Reno (Nevada)-(Lake) Tahoe Organizing Committee for the Olympic Winter Games, and National Advisory Board of the Women’s Sports Foundation.
The Sacramento Metro Chamber and a trustee of the Crocker Art Museum have named her Volunteer of the Year. Hurley has traveled extensively through Europe, the Pacific Rim countries and Kuwait. She lives in El Macero with her husband, Edward, and one son.
