CLASH POLL: I’m Betting This Kid Is SMARTER Than Michelle Obama – Do YOU Agree?

Written by K. Walker on May 15, 2017

We’re positive that he writes better than Michelle does.

Of course, so does the average 5th-grader.

In public school.

Don’t believe me?

Read Michelle’s thesis. It’s the stuff of nightmares for anyone who loves the English language.

But let’s get back to 14-year old Carson Huey-You. The self-described ‘normal dude’ just become the youngest graduate of Texas Christian University after completing a Bachelor of Physics. He is going to return to TCU to complete his Masters’ Degree. He is planning on pursuing a Doctorate degree in quantum mechanics.

But he doesn’t see himself as any different from others his age, and even shies away when others call him a ‘genius’ or ‘celebrity’.

‘I’m a normal dude,’ he told the Star-telegram. ‘It is just something I have learned to deal with because, to me I am not a genius. I am a normal 14-year-old person doing college-level stuff.’

Carson was homeschooled and attended a private Christian school for his high school education. He began the 8th grade at age 5, he graduated high school as co-valedictorian and enrolled at TCU for physics when he was 11 years old.

So, tell me again why homeschooling and school choice is a bad idea…


And it looks like his younger brother is following his lead:

This prodigy has also had to share the spotlight with his brother Cannan, a 10-year-old who graduated from the Accommodated Learning Academy – the same high school his brother attended – and is also headed to the Texas Christian Academy to study engineering, physics and astronomy.

Even though both boys already have enough on their resume to make their mother proud, their mom Claretta Kimp – who shed a tear as her son received his diploma – loves to know that through it all her sons are still close.

‘It’s sweet,’ she said of their relationship, adding that she hopes her sons grow up to be selfless people who give back to society.
