Cowboy Troy

Y'all remember Troy, from Season One of The Apprentice?  The country boy from Idaho who made it as one of the finalists, and who Donald Trump famously offered to pay for his tuition to any college?





Well, he was the emcee at our local World Down Syndrome Day event.  His sister has Down syndrome, so he is heavily involved in the Down syndrome community.

Now, I am not one to go out of my way to meet a "celebrity".  But this was a pretty intimate family-oriented gathering, so I thought it would be fun to go up to him and meet him.  And of course I drug the whole family with me.


Please note how excited Isaiah and Noah are to be in the presence of a celebrity.



Troy was asking Noah questions about himself.  This was right after Noah told him that Isaiah may be taller, but he can run faster.



It was fun meeting Troy, and asking him questions about his experience on The Apprentice.  In case you're wondering, yes, he's still good friends with Kwame, and no, he never took Donald up on the college offer.  But more importantly, it was fun seeing Troy making a difference in the lives of others.
