Max Baucus addresses Missoula high school students at Montana World Affairs Council Academic WorldQuest

Hundreds of high school students gathered on Monday evening at the University of Montana to hear from a former U.S. Senator who wants to encourage them to find solutions for global problems.

Former senator and U.S. ambassador to China Max Baucus told the students that they are the future and gave some insights into just how people are, everywhere.

Baucus said people are the same the world over: they care about jobs, healthcare, and education for their kids.

But he anticipates cybersecurity to be a key issue the future leaders deal with.
