AIR DATE: April 1, 2011

Most people know Dawn Wells as the loveable castaway "Mary Ann" on the TV sitcom "Gilligan's Island."  But few know that she grew up in Reno, and that she was Miss Nevada long before she was Mary Ann Summers.  Now, she's working to open a children's museum in her hometown.  Dawn Wells talks about growing up in Reno, her current projects, and what happened after she left the island.
