Grant is an 8th grader at Longfellow Middle School. He trains and competes in BMX. Grant is two hours from any BMX track, but he has a track at home that he maintains and trains on. He also trains in the gym to stay on top of the competition. He represented the US in the UCI World Championships this past summer in South Carolina and did very well at our USA BMX Grand Nationals. He placed 18th on his cruise bike and 29th on his class bike out of all the 14 year old experts in the country. In addition to being an exceptional bike racer, Grant excels in football and basketball. He is a trombone player in the school’s band and jazz band as well. He gets A’s and B’s in school and is in the high performance learning math class.

Miley was one of Chloe's musical inspirations growing up. She has always wanted to be a singer but after graduation, she decided to go to college to be an English teacher. Soon after, she realized that wasn't for her, so she quit school and started playing in a blues band. Her decision to pursue music wasn't exactly what her parents hoped for, as they have always been concerned that the music industry can be unpredictable. While they always want what's best for Chloe, they are still supportive of her singing. The Voice is Chloe's chance to make her parents proud and get validation of her musical talent.
Follow Chloe's journey!

Andrew is a junior at Viroqua High School. He is a three sport varsity athlete and is a starter on all of those teams: Football, Basketball, and Baseball. He puts his school work first and because of that his GPA is stupendous. Andrew is great teammate and friend to anyone that knows him. His friends and family are so proud of the person he has become through all these years.
Our friend Amy DuPont who used to work on one of our local TV stations is now working at Fox6 in Milwaukee, and she's gone viral! On Wednesday, Amy was about to go live when her photographer nailed her in the face with a snowball. Amy had to go live within 30 seconds and had to pull herself together. She's a pro! Being that Amy and I are besties (she was in my wedding this past October), we got an exclusive interview with Amy this morning! Check it out! And when Ellen calls...remember who loves you most :)
And because we can't stop watching it, here's the snowball to the face!
