North Texas boy, 12, to attend Cornell University this fall

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) — A Grand Prairie boy who’s not yet a teenager plans to attend Cornell University this fall and study engineering physics and math.

A Cornell tweet Monday welcomed Jeremy Shuler, saying: “He’s 12, he’s from Texas, and he’s very, very smart.”

Jeremy was home-schooled. His high school diploma is from the Texas Tech University Independent School District, a flexible online program.

Jeremy’s parents are aerospace engineers. His father, Andy, earned his degree from Cornell — an Ivy League school in Ithaca, New York.

Engineering Dean Lance Collins says Jeremy is a very advanced and has already demonstrated an incredible ability to learn at the collegiate level.

A Texas Tech statement says Jeremy’s father works for Lockheed Martin, transferred to New York and the family was moving to Ithaca.
