When Tami Wells was 3, her mother left her at a day care and never came back.  She ended up in Boys Town, a treatment center that eventually became her home.  Now, she's a general manager at Sierra Gold Tavern, and just became the Boys Town Alumnus of the Year.  So what did she learn while she was in Boys Town? How does it prepare Nevada teens for the real world?  What does Boys Town offer that foster care does not?  Tami Wells and two current Boys Town residents share their stories.
