With the effects of the kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian young girls from their boarding school, by extremist Islamist coward men, I am fortified by this feel good story from CBS Interactive Inc.

Florida teen graduates from high school and college in same week

 

 

 

Published on May 6, 2014

Graduating from high school at 16 is impressive enough. But managing to get your college degree before you even graduate high school? Astounding.

 

Grace Bush is clearly a rare talent, both intelligent and incredibly hard working. The Florida teen recently earned her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Florida Atlantic University. Later this week, she’ll get her high school diploma from Florida Atlantic University High School.

 

So how does somebody graduate from college before high school?

Grace participated in Florida Atlantic University’s dual enrollment program, which allows gifted high school students to earn college credit for the same courses. Students (and parents, who may foot the bill) save both time and money.

 

Grace admits that the order in which she is getting her diplomas is a little wacky. “It’s kind of weird that I graduated college before high school,” she told CBS Miami.

 

Grace, who is one of nine children, began her college career at 13 and studied through the summers in order to graduate early. She also participates in two orchestras, where she plays the flute.

Now that you feel like a total slacker, more about Grace.

 

Her mother, Gisla Bush, told CBS Miami that she home-schooled all of her kids (somebody buy this woman something nice for Mother’s Day). Grace showed her talents for picking things up quickly from an early age, according to her mom.

 

“At 2 years old, she was already reading, and I was totally shocked,” she said

Up next for Grace: a master’s degree followed by law school. She said she’d eventually like to be chief justice of the United States.

Watch your back, John Roberts.

MIAMI – A 16-year-old South Florida girl has double reason to celebrate: She’s collecting diplomas from both high school and college within the space of one week.

In an unusual twist, Grace Bush earned a bachelor’s degree from college — but she won’t have her high school diploma until Friday, CBS Miami reported.

“It’s kind of weird that I graduated college before high school,” she said

The Hollywood teen received her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice last Friday morning from Florida Atlantic University.

 

She did it with a 3.8 grade point average, completing the four-year degree in just three years.

 

“I started when I was 13 at Broward College and I also took my classes throughout the summer, so I was able to finish it before four years,” she said.

Bush will get her high school diploma on May 9th from Florida Atlantic University High School.

 

The institution’s dual enrollment program allows high-performing high school students to earn credit for the same courses toward their college degree and save thousands of dollars in tuition at the same time.

 

Bush’s parents wanted their nine children to earn college credit in high school because they can’t afford to send all of their kids to college. Their mother, who home-schooled all the kids, knew early on that Grace had a knack for learning.

 

“At 2 years old, she was already reading and I was totally shocked,” said her mother, Gisla Bush.

 

Grace is the third oldest in the Bush family.

 

“My two older sisters are doing it and I’m the third to do it. My oldest sister already graduated and my second oldest sister is graduating in the summer,” she said.

 

The new college graduate said she’ll be pursuing a master’s degree this fall, and then going to law school.

 

“I would eventually like to become chief justice of the United States,” Grace Bush said.

 

During her spare time she plays the flute in two orchestras and that keeps her busy, but the teen said she will finally take a little break during the summer.

 

“To study for the LSAT, so I can get as high a score as possible, so hopefully I can get a full ride into a good law school,” she said.
