When Scott Cramton was born, he had a cleft pallet. It took 6 or 7 surgeries just to get him to the point of being able to speak. Scott worked hard , with his speech therapist(s) and was very focused even though he was told he should NEVER do any kind of public speaking! His dad fought hard and worked hard to get Scott the help he needed, from surgery to speech therapy and confidence building. Scott’s dad worked 2 jobs and tons of overtime. In the end, Scott WENT INTO PUBLIC SPEAKING!!! He has formed the “American Immersion Theater”.
I talk with Scott about his company and The sacrifices his dad made for him. Scott’s dad was a performer who never got the chance to perform. Due to his noble work ethic and dedication to his family, Scott’s dad entertained those around him, but never got the big chance.
