FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A 14-year-old physics major has become the youngest person ever to graduate from Texas Christian University, and it looks like being a genius runs in the family.
Carson Huey-You was among more than 2,000 students getting degrees at the Fort Worth school founded in 1873. He started at TCU in 2013 when he was 11. He also has minors in Chinese and math.
Huey-You tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram his favorite thing about college has been getting to learn things he never thought about, things he never knew existed and things he might not even think about thinking about. He also says he’s learned how to deal with “some real hard classes” and get over the disappointment of a poor score on a test.
The self-described “normal dude” wants to work on getting graduate degrees in quantum mechanics.
But he is not the only gifted member of the family. Carson’s younger brother Cannan appears to be following in his sibling’s footsteps.
“He’s 11-years-old. He graduated high school,” their mother, Claretta Kimp, said. “He will start TCU in the fall semester.”
Cannan says he will study engineering, physics and astronomy, because he wants to be an astronaut.
