2020 has been an incredible year for young people achieving amazing feats. From teenage entrepreneurs to prodigies in the arts, the accomplishments of young people have been truly inspiring. One of the most impressive feats of the year was the graduation of a handful of high school students who graduated at an incredibly young age.
David Katoatau, from the island of Kiribati, graduated high school at the age of 10. He was the youngest person to ever graduate from high school in his country, and his story has been an inspiration to many. However, he is not the youngest person to ever graduate high school in the world.
The only person on that list younger than David, is Michael Kearney, who still holds the Guinness World Record for youngest high school graduate that he set in 1990, when he was only 6 years old — yes, you read correctly — age 6. Kearney then obtained master’s degrees at ages 14 and 18.
Kearney’s incredible story of success began at the age of two, when he was accepted into a gifted program at the University of South Alabama. He was able to skip grades and move ahead in his studies, eventually graduating high school at the age of six.
Kearney’s story is an inspiration to young people everywhere. It shows that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible. It also serves as a reminder that age should not be a barrier to achieving your dreams.
In 2021, Kearney will be celebrating his 33rd birthday. He has since gone on to become a successful entrepreneur and is now the CEO of a tech startup. He also continues to inspire young people to reach for their dreams and achieve success, no matter their age.
Michael Kearney’s story is an inspiration to us all. He is a reminder that age should not be a barrier to achieving your dreams. He has shown us that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors and look forward to hearing more about his success in the years to come.
