Some area high school students learned the importance education plays in today’s ever changing society.

Many Maysville High students attended the "Mind your Own Business" seminar earlier Friday. CEO Cassandra McDonald spoke to students about three key issues many students face.

"It’s all about education, employment and empowerment. We’re here today (Friday) at Maysville and the three things I want them to walk away with are that they are valuable, they have a voice about their future and we’re here to hear that voice," said McDonald.

McDonald says one of the biggest things parents can do is recognize that their children need to be heard but at the same time, parents also should listen.

"If you can talk one on one and then find out their dreams and vision, and then help them learn how to facilitate that so that they can achieve because everyone deserves hopes and dreams and fulfillment of that," said McDonald.
