He’s 9. He’s in college. Really.


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette introduces us to a remarkably intelligent 9-year-old boy.

On May 26, the spirited, erudite and boldly confident boy from Penn Township, Westmoreland County — looking every bit the scholar while speaking professorially — graduated from Penn-Trafford High School after passing all required exams. He was invited to enroll this summer at Carnegie Mellon University, his father said.

Believing William needed a break, Father Maillis, who serves as priest of the Presentation of Christ Greek Orthodox Church in East Pittsburgh, and his wife, Nancy, decided to enroll William at Community College of Allegheny County’s Boyce campus to get him acclimated to a full college schedule, with expectations he’ll enroll at CMU next year at the advanced age of 10.
