19-year-old genius bags Bachelor’s degree from US university in just two years instead of four, set to become an Astronaut

An exceptional 19-year-old genius boy named Ronald McCullough has bagged a bachelor’s degree from Clark Atlanta University within a span of two years, instead of the usual four-year timeframe.

Ronald McCullough got enrolled into Clark Atlanta University at the age of 16 after he graduated from Maynard Jackson High School in Atlanta at the young age of 15. He told Fox News that his parents recognized his genius-level intelligence early.

Ronald outpaced his classmates in science and mathematics that he had to skip second grade which resulted him in graduating high school early. He said his university friends did not believe he was much younger than them until he showed his driver’s license.

He added that they described him as a genius because of his extraordinary ability to understand and retain information about very complex subjects but Ronald said he does not consider himself as one.

The program provides students with the ultimate learning experience with the goals of nurturing and fostering intellectual independence and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

The president of the program, Teri Platt describes Ronald as one of the best students of the university with a very good character in general adding that he represents black excellence and its many manifestations.

“Ronald embodies the best and the brightest we have here at CAU, He definitely represents black excellence and its many manifestations. Teri Platt said. Not only is he brilliant, but he also has unimpeachable character. He has contagious drive and ambition, but remains grounded,” she added.

Ronald attributes his achievements at a young age to his consistent practice of doing what is expected of him and cultivating the habit of making the right choices.“I just wake up in the morning and do the right thing. Just by doing what I believe is the right thing for my future, I’ve been rewarded greatly,” he said.

Ronald said Post-graduate engineering programs are heavily recruiting him, including North Carolina A&T State University and the University of Hawaii.
