16YO Youngest To Get WSU Degree

A 16-year-old will become the youngest person on record to graduate from Washington State University this May. Kayla Heard of Union, Washington, could talk when she was 1, and read at 18 months. She started first grade at age 3, graduated from high school at 10, and began community college at 11. Kayla is home-schooled and is earning her social sciences degree though WSU online. "My parents felt it wouldn't be good to send me to a campus at such a young age," she said. "I appreciate their decision, mainly because online studying has given me quite a bit of flexibility in my schedule"/Eric Wilkinson, KING5. More here.
