Teenager Graduates from ECU

Now there was one graduate, that raised some eyebrows, for an extremely amazing accomplishment. Meet Kyle Bradley Nichols, a student who graduated Saturday with a batchelor's degree in science, and also one of only 5 winners of the Robert H. Wright Alumni Leadership Award. But what sets this student apart isn't his grade point average, but it is a number, his age. Kyle Nichols is only 17 years old. Most people his age are in their junior or senior year of high school but Nichols graduated Saturday, but he doesn't see himself as remarkable.

Nichols hopes to head off to medical school, and has already been accepted as an alternate to Wake Forest University's program.
