    Travis Osmond: "It's OK to Make Mistakes"

    Travis Osmond is the oldest son of Merrill and Mary Osmond.  Early on in life, he experienced the mania involved in touring with his parents, uncles, and aunt Marie.

    Thurl Bailey: "Power in Potential"

    As a 6'7" eighth-grader, Thurl Bailey was cut from his school's basketball team and the coach told him to never come back. The next year, a new coach offered him a spot on the team because of the potential he saw in Thurl. Within eight years, Thurl Bailey had won an NCAA Championship at North Carolina State and was drafted by the NBA's Utah Jazz--in large part because one coach saw in him what others couldn't.
