    Seniors at Bullitt Central High School were schooled in practical matters such as managing credit cards, changing a tire, finances and dormitory room cooking, the television station reported.

    Christy Hardin, director of the high school’s Family Resource & Youth Services Center, organized the event, bringing in community leaders to speak to the students.

    “I think that the idea occurred to me originally, I saw a Facebook post that parents passed around saying they needed a class in high school on taxes, and cooking,” Hardin told WAVE. “Our kids can get that, but they have to choose it. And (Wednesday) was a day they could pick and choose pieces they didn’t feel like they had gotten so far."
