They weren't even alive when he was president, but 18-year-old Nick Jonas and 21-year-old "American Idol" champ Jordin Sparks are huge Ronald Reagan fans.

Jonas and Sparks are leading a committee of 35 prominent young people touched by the life of the Gipper, the nation's 40th president who left the White House in 1989. He died six years ago.

The National Youth Leadership Committee of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration includes athletes, entertainers and student leaders who are under age 25. They have been inspired in a personal way by Reagan's vision and the committee will honor Reagan's 100th birthday Feb. 6.

Jonas and Sparks, co-chairs of the group, say they developed an admiration for Reagan after hearing their parents talk about him at the dinner table.
