14-year-old whiz kid graduates from ASU with degree in sociology

Gavin Munson has been accumulating college credits since he was 10 years old!

TEMPE, Ariz — It's graduation week at Arizona State University and among the graduates is 14-year-old whiz kid Gavin Munson.

Munson has been accumulating college credits since he was 10 years old and will graduate with his bachelor's degree in sociology.

"You know, I was so young, I didn't notice how absurd that was, like how much of a leap that was," he said. 

"My parents would drop me off, I go to class, and I just sit in the classroom and learn that just about normal life for me. And then, from there, I graduated and looked for a college, and ASU fit me perfectly."

Gavin will be the youngest student who graduated on Thursday, along with 19,000 of his peers.
