While there are many families that choose to accept this lack
of schooling as "the way it is," Sarah and her mom made it
a point of supplementing Sarah's schoolwork with on-set
tutoring throughout the course of her workday.
Sarah's mother felt school was too important to ignore just
because the union hadn't gotten around to battling this issue
with the producers. Thus, the Gellar family took it upon themselves
to make sure that Sarah completed high school with topnotch grades.
Education meant so much to Keri Russell, J.C. Chasez, Marc
Worden, Tony Lucca and Rhona Bennett that they paused
in the course of taping "The Mickey Mouse Club" to allow
themselves to graduate from high school at a wonderful graduation
ceremony held on-stage at the Disney-MGM studios in Orlando.
Justin Timberlake received his diploma this May during a concert
in Kansas City. His mom flew his favorite high school tutor to
the show to acknowledge the hard work that he had put into
getting his diploma, at a time when most students in Justin's position
might have said, " What do I need to graduate from high school for?"
There are many other examples of the hard work that young
professionals put into their schooling and their performing. These
are just a few, but you can learn from their example - and apply
the importance of education and dedication to your own life.
Have all young performers finished high school? No, they haven't.
But the most balanced and successful ones have.
Let me share this story with you of another very well known
child performer who was studying math with his on-set teacher.
This young man was a major name at the time of this incident,
huge in terms of popularity and the money he was making
as a movie star.
He was in the midst of his lesson with the teacher, when he
looked at her and said coldly, "I really don't have to know this
math junk, you know. Someday, I'm going to have an
accountant watching my money for me."
Without missing a beat, the teacher answered back:
"That may be true. But how will you know you're not
being cheated - that you're getting everything you worked
so hard to earn - if you can't do the simple arithmetic?"
The youngster finished his homework without another word.
Finding that right balance is the key to being a success in life.
CyberSpacers, no matter what your career goal may be -
a good education, hard work and dedication - really can
make your dreams come true.
