We’ve heard of skipping a grade, but skipping all of middle AND high school? That’s a new one.


Pre-pubescent prodigy and Baton Rouge native Elijah Preccieley began his first semester as a student at Southern University this week.

Here’s wishing Elijah plenty of success in his scholarly pursuits!
