Jon McLaughlin has had quite a year. Certainly one for the ole scrapbook.

The highlights? There’s his music being used in the movies "Georgia Rules" and "Bridge to Terabithia," as well as making his own silver-screen debut later this fall in Disney’s "Enchanted." That comes after McLaughlin appeared in an episode of the daytime soap "The Bold & The Beautiful" in August.

"It started out of a commitment to our mission, our community and this area," said Collette.

Twenty years later SOAL still serves that purpose.

For Scott, however, the business relationship is not as friendly as a neighborhood watering hole. Court costs, increasing competition and Anderson’s economic woes make every day a challenge. That is where Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) enters the picture.

Jasmine Lee, 18, and her two younger sisters would fight all the time when she still lived at home, but when it came to the love and compassion the sisters had for each other, they would do anything for each other.

“We’ve had to stick kind of close because there’s no immediate family out here,” the Anderson University student said.

Not only are they close to each other and their parents, but Lee said that spending time with her family makes her a happier person.
