West Virginia State Treasurer John Perdue is making his way around to high schools in our region to teach kids about how to handle money. He's also teaching seniors how to save their money.

Perdue has made stops at Ripley High School, Capitol High School and Riverside High School on Tuesday. He said students should be prepared when they go to college by knowing about financial responsibility. "We're making them experience life like what their parents experienced every day. Trying to teach them how to budget and trying to educate them that life's not all about roses. It's about debt and bills as well. Maybe they should be saving a little bit from the part-time job, whether it's for education or whether it's for a rainy day," said Perdue.

The top recommendation for high school students during Tuesday's seminars was to invest in a stock.
