After 17 years in College, Texas man finally graduates, wonderful



After 17 years, T. Terrell “Ian” Parker, a resident of Houston, Texas, has finally received his college diploma. He is an officer in the US Army who started attending college in August 2004.

He hasn’t been able to graduate up until this point due to his employment and other circumstances. Texas Southern University, an HBCU in Houston, is where he received his bachelor’s degree.

Abraham Lincoln was cited by Parker in his LinkedIn article as saying, “Took me 17 hard years, but I did it. I might move slowly, but I’ll never go back.

Parker’s tenacity was praised by many in the comments.

Hey, that’s awesome as long as you did it! Although not everyone takes the same route to achieving their objectives and desires, everyone does it with a strong will and heart.

The greatest to take you from here,” one person penned. Another person remarked, “Greatness can come at any time.”

Another 14-year old black Teen to graduate college next year

Texas teenager Ian Taylor Schlitz, 14, is now only one year away from finishing his undergraduate degree.

He is currently a full-time student at the University of North Texas and is forging his own path to follow in the footsteps of his older sister Haley, who graduated from college at the age of 16 a few years ago.

Ian tested very gifted at a young age, just like his sister. Their parents made the decision to withdraw them from public school and homeschool them instead.

At Tarrant County College, where Haley had previously studied, Ian was already enrolled in college-level classes at the age of ten.
Ian enrolled in the University of North Texas after TCC.

Haley, on the other hand, continued her studies at Texas Woman’s University where she graduated, got accepted to 9 law schools, and decided to enter Southern Methodist University Dedman where she is currently in her second year in law school.

Ian said he took advice from Haley regarding college and how he can manage his full course load better.

He likes to focus on his studies but still manages to connect with his friends sometimes.

Moreover, Ian is managing his hobby-turned-business, Kidlamity Gaming, wherein he hosts video game tournaments for youth.

Despite this, he claims he still has plenty of time to pick between a career in animation and one in medicine.

“At this time, I’m not really sure what I want to do. Running my business is fun… I’m thinking about getting my MBA next. My mother is a doctor, therefore I’m starting to consider becoming one myself.

Fortunately for me, I have the time to go toward an MBA while still considering attending medical school. One of the benefits of early college, according to Ian, is that.
