Michael Kearney was the youngest college graduate, receiving a bachelor's degree in anthropology from the University of South Alabama at the age of 10 in 1994. This achievement led to Kearney being entered into the Guinness Book of World Records. Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at a young age, Kearney's parents refused to give the child the prescription Ritalin which is usually given to those diagnosed with the disorder. His parents chose to home school Kearney, and he was able to graduate high school when he was 6 years old. Kearney continued his college education, and at the age of 14 received his master's degree in biochemistry from Middle Tennessee State University.
