15-Year-Old Graduates From The University of Baltimore



 
This is a great story about an exceptional young man, Ty Hobson-Powell.  I already want to make his first name his initials, T.H. Powell.  It just sounds great for the history books.  I'm sorry, but this makes me so excited; this brings me so much joy.  Out of all the negative press that we get in the media concerning young African American men, this is so refreshing.  I pray that God protects this young man and take him to new heights - far beyong what he can imagine.  By the way, a special kudos to his parents, family, and community because it takes a village.  Press on Ty.  Press on.  I wish you all the success that God can give.  He gave you that talent for a reason -- His purpose.  Check out the video.

Thanks for sharing this, Stephen! Because, even though my home is a 10 minute drive from Baltimore, I have NOT heard this story! Crazy, huh? And I read the news online every day! I too am proud of him and so happy to hear this story. It is inspiring and encouraging to me. I have yet to graduate from college, but it is a goal that I'm still pursuing.

Yeah, this was great. Keep pursuing that dream. I know many people who started college later in life. No time better than the present. Besides, you're a smart woman and you have a lot more to offer this world. God bless.
