Pre-teen graduates from high school and college – in the same week
What was your lockdown hobby?
Learned how to bake sourdough? Planted a veggie garden? Maybe you finally learnt an instrument.
Well, prepare to feel thoroughly outdone.
Twelve-year-old Mike Wimmer, from North Carolina, decided to make the most of his lockdown last year, and picked up a few extra school subjects.
Now, he’s graduating from high school on May 28 (the usual age is 18) – a week after he graduates from college.
Oh, and he’s valedictorian of his graduating high school class.
Mike’s big passion is robotics and, along with that, the big-ticket STEM subjects of maths and science.
“If one door’s locked, he’ll find out another way around to figure out how to accomplish his goals,” his mother Melissa told CNN.
