Tracey Osgood uses her challenge money to honor a beloved teacher who died of cancer. Linda Watts taught high school English to Tracey's daughter Amanda.

In memory of Linda, Tracey donates her challenge money to a scholarship in her name.

"She inspired everyone to want to do more with education and do more with English," Amanda says of Linda. "I'm glad that my mom's giving the money to her scholarship foundation, because I know it's going to a good cause."

The scholarship will go to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in education.

"I felt very grateful … to be able to impact people, grateful that Mrs. Watts touched the lives of so many, including my daughter," Tracey says. "[I was] relieved that it all came together—and touched that Oprah truly believes that everyone can make a difference in someone's life."
