LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- University of Nevada, Las Vegas will soon award its youngest graduate in the history of the school.

Jack Rico, who enrolled at UNLV when he was just 13 years old, is set to graduate from the school on Dec. 14.

Rico, who will be known as the youngest graduate in the school's history, will receive his bachelor's degree. The degree will mark Rico's fifth, as he already has four associate's degrees from Fullerton College in California.

When he graduated from Fullerton in May 2020, CNN reported that Rico was also the youngest student to achieve that feat in the school's 107-year-old history.

According to Ru Andrade, his mother, Rico is graduating a semester early, with honors.

"I just love learning new stuff," Rico told CNN previously. "I love knowing more about the world and all the different things we could study."

The Young Brain Boy.


Definitely didn't get his early education in clark county.


Could've shared his ambitions, his programs of study, his particularly favorite courses, his understanding of the significance of his accomplishments... or would that make the article better and take up too much ad space. Hopefully he studied Journalism; it's obvious this publication needs help.
