HOUSTON – While many teens are managing to get through high school, this 15-year-old boy will make history at Sam Houston State University by being its first youngest graduate.

Nehemiah Juniel, 15, will receive his bachelor’s degree in health sciences in August, making him the youngest student to ever graduate from the university.

Juniel said he’s always had an interest in learning, which led him to discovering how to play the piano by ear, according to the university. At just 5 years old, he was doing pre-algebra and received his Associates of Science degree by 13 years old.

Studious student grew up with six siblings and was homeschooled by his parents along with his sister, who will also graduate ahead of schedule from SHSU in the fall at the 19 years old.

Financial aid spent hours with us to get Nehemiah’s award package worked out. They went the extra mile when speaking with the Federal Student Aid office, and were the most patient, resilient staff we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” said Corie, Juniel’s mother. “With my husband being a veteran, we used his Hazelwood benefits, and the Veterans Resource Center walked us through the process.”

Although he is naturally gifted in his learning ability, the teen said earning a college degree and maintaining good grades came with great challenges.

“The biggest challenge was staying focused. It was especially difficult when the course material was uninteresting or something I already knew,” Juniel said. “I often needed encouragement from others to put effort into such work before I put myself back on track again. My professors and teaching assistants were the most positive aspect of my experience at SHSU.”

He said he will soon start studying for the MCAT to pursue his dream of becoming a cardiologist, according to the university.
