“Education plays an important role in being successful. It’s not always easy to stay motivated, but putting your best foot forward is essential to reaching your goals,” says Floyd Mayweather, Director of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation. “I encourage all parents to stay in the know about their child’s studies and school activities because they play a large role in each student’s success.”
