Samantha Holland of Lucedale will graduate from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College on May 9. She finishes with highest honors, a 4.0 GPA, and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Ordinarily this would mean she is stepping into the world of full-time work.
But there is something remarkable about this student. Samantha is only 15 years old. And she has not yet even graduated from Mississippi School for Mathematics in Science (MSMS) in Columbus. After graduation, she will still have another year of high school before she graduates in May 2020.
