Playground leads to political career

Sometimes "it starts with a playground," and leads to a political career! Check this out.

A few years ago, two sisters and a community came together.

Jennifer Scott, 38, her sister, Cindy Bee, and thousands of volunteers spent 10 days building Utah's largest playground: the Wild West Jordan Playground in West Jordan.

Scott learned to work with volunteers and channel their talents, and then parlayed that experience into helping Republican Jason Chaffetz get elected to Congress.

Do you know anyone who's parlayed their playground building experience into a career? Post it in the comments!
