North Texas boy, 12, to attend Cornell University this fall
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) — A Dallas-area boy who's not yet a teenager plans to attend Cornell University this fall and study engineering physics and math.
A Cornell tweet Monday welcomed Jeremy Shuler of Grand Prairie, saying: "He's 12, he's from Texas, and he's very, very smart."
Jeremy was home schooled. His high school diploma is from the Texas Tech University Independent School District, a flexible online program.
Jeremy's parents are aerospace engineers. His father, Andy, earned his degree from Cornell — an Ivy League school in Ithaca, New York.
Engineering Dean Lance Collins says Jeremy is a very advanced and has already demonstrated an incredible ability to learn at the collegiate level.
A Texas Tech statement says Jeremy's father works for Lockheed Martin, transferred to New York and the family was moving to Ithaca.
