LA MIRADA, Callif. — At this rate, Jack Rico could earn a master’s degree before most of his peers graduate high school. He certainly has a good shot at earning a bachelor’s degree by then.
He plans to continue his education on a full scholarship at the University of Nevada, where he will major in history, the television station reported.
“I’m 13, so I don’t want to rush everything,” Rico told KABC. “I’m still trying to figure it out, but I just want to focus on learning right now. That’s what I love to do.”
When he is not earning degrees, Rico said he enjoys playing video games, the television station reported.
Rico’s achievement is unusual, but so is his graduation ceremony. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Rico will participate in a drive-by celebration Wednesday, according to KABC.
Is he a fast-mover? Rico already has a LinkedIn account.
