Kicker: Double graduation

NICK EICHER, HOST: A 16-year-old boy from Kansas by the name of Braxton Moral has a very busy May.

He has two graduations to fit in.

He’s a senior at Ulysses High School and he’s in effect a senior in college, too. Not just any college, by the way: Harvard.

The young man will graduate from both schools: a high-school diploma from Ulysses, and a bachelor’s degree from Harvard.

He will just have had his 17th birthday.

So, how did he do it? To begin with, he just skipped the fourth grade. Then when the first opportunity came along to take a college class, he took it, and did that before he even entered high school.

He would gain admission to Harvard and study at the university’s extension school while finishing his high-school classes.

Next stop for Braxton Moral is law school, then politics, and then, provided he’s content to wait until he’s 35…

MORAL: Without a doubt, president of the United States. Just to say I was president of the United States.
