“If I were to go in and I just easily breezed through, this wouldn’t really mean anything to me. I was able to get to where I am by working as hard as I could,” he added.

Tom’s mother, Kathy Jordan said he began taking a pre-algebra course at Stark State College when he was 11, and by age 14, he was enrolled at the college full-time via independent study.
