A brilliant teenage boy named Xzorion Harris has achieved a remarkable feat after winning $8 million worth of scholarships from 40 Universities and Colleges in the United States.
Xzorion Harris is a Memphis teen who earned acceptance from 100 colleges and universities in the United States. He also has been offered more than 8 million dollars in scholarship money.
Harris graduated from Whitehaven High School in Memphis, Tennessee with a good grade. He is one of the 46 Whitehaven graduating seniors to receive more than $1 million in scholarships.
He said he was surprised at his achievement, as he did not expect such accomplishments from a Black kid. Harris said he believed the achievements reflected his dedication and hard work, and he is proud of himself.
Harris also received the 5th highest amount of scholarships in the history of his high school and the largest of any male student.
Whitehaven School’s Senior English teacher and Dual Enrollment Specialist, Akita Banger Gray described Harris’s achievement as a mindblowing one and one that he expected. “For most of our students, it’s the expectation, so it’s not surprising. When you go as far as Xzorion has gone, it’s mind-blowing,” he said.
Advising others who want to be like him, Harris encouraged them to be dedicated and put in their best in anything they do.
