15 Year Old Who Graduated High School And Community College The Same Day

“I can handle whatever comes my way.”

Talk about determination! You make your world and LeAnna Roberts at just 15 knows this fact.

Through hard work and dedication, the inspiring teen rewrote the history books as the youngest person ever to graduate Central High School, and amazingly, it didn’t just end there, through a dual-enrollment program at Shelton State Community College which afforded her at the age of 13 during her ninth-grade year to take classes at Central High School and Shelton State at the same time, she bagged her Associate’s degree hours apart.

“At the time, I didn’t know I’d be graduating today. But my hard work is paying off,” she told WBRC.
The 15 year-old graduated from Shelton State Community College at 11am and Tuscaloosa’s Central High School several hours later.

Dishing on how she was able to pull through, the inspiring teen who completed high school with a 4.45 GPA, served as freshman class president, was on the varsity tennis and cheerleading teams and was a violinist and pianist for the University of Alabama’s Community Music School said:

“It was a lot of self-learning involved and also balancing extracurricular activities and a social life of course,” she said.

“There were hardships, but it was rewarding in the end.”

“It’s important for me to get a jump start because I know what I want to do in my life.”

“I cheered. I played tennis. I held different leadership positions throughout school so if there’s a basketball game that might not start until seven, I would come home have to do my homework and Shelton homework. So it was a lot balancing and managing my time,” Roberts added.

Roberts who now attends the University of Alabama, plans upon graduation to pursue her dream of attending medical school to become an orthopedic spine surgeon
