Students at Dunbar Intermediate School got a lesson in business on Tuesday. Junior Achievement came to Charleston to share financial lessons. Young students spent the day learning from 20 Huntington Bancshares bankers.

The focus was on working in business and making responsible financial decisions that will shape their lives. The classes were also open for the school principal. Teaching volunteers from the bank, as well as the Junior Achievement program manager, also took part.

They said they were impressed with the students' business creativity. "Some of them already have some good ideas. We had one child that had a baby sitting business for pets," said Bill Crum, Huntington Bancshares Vice President and Director of Corporate Affairs.

Crum said that it's important for children to begin learning about how to make important and responsible financial decisions because the decisions they make now will impact their futures for years to come.
