Local author, Maria Young, is stressing the importance of education through her new book, Lost in a Game.

Young grew up in Asheville and comes from a family where education was stressed.

She says she lost track of its importance when she went to college and achieved success on the basketball court.

Now, she's taking the time to give back, mentor and encourage others to make education a top priority.

You can find Lost in a Game in Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.
