Lester Holt Finds Out What Inspires America

By Chris Ariens Comment

Lester Holt kicks off a two-week run of the Inspiring America series on NBC Nightly News tonight.

The stories, reported by Holt and correspondents Rehema Ellis, Joe Fryer, Kevin Tibbles and Kristen Dahlgren, feature remarkable people making positive impacts in their communities; like the entrepreneur who donates frequent flier miles so people can make it home for the holidays; and Zion Harvey, a young boy who made medical history by becoming the first child to receive a double hand transplant; and Laura Benedict, who has raised nearly $2 million for several causes in Maine.
