14-year-old student makes college history

U.S. & World

A standout 14-year-old student in Atlanta, Georgia just made history.

Sydney Wilson is the youngest student ever to be accepted into Spelman College.

Wilson says she was teased when she started taking high school classes at age 10

“I just stayed on my path,” she said.

Her hard work paid off when Spelman officials notified Wilson’s dad of her acceptance.

“I looked at it and I just melt. I was screaming and I was crying.”

Wilson says she wants to work with animals and plans on being a biology major.
