(Editor’s note: Most of the following information comes from the article “Make Way for the College’s Youngest and Oldest Graduate.” Fisher Lee is from Baxley and has been a student at VSU since he was 14. He is the son of Ron and Knicole Lee. Should you care to read the article, you may go to https://vstatecohss.wordpress.com.)
Next May, Fisher Lee will be the youngest student to graduate from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. At the young age of sixteen, he has completed nearly four years of college. His major is Organizational Leadership, but he has a double minor in Public Administration and Political Science. Not only is he ambitious, humble, and academically successful, he plans to continue next fall by working on his Master’s in Public Administration. He says he needs a solid background in the business world before he begins his medical studies. Now, he does IT work for a health care organization in his hometown, and he expects to wind up in medical management.
Fisher started VSU at the age of fourteen and says his middle school teachers encouraged him to try his luck at the ACT. He did well. Shortly thereafter, he decided to take VSU’s online ORGL degree.
He’s enjoyed a wonderful experience at VSU. He’s especially enjoyed health care law. The study of this class gives him the ability to identify health care abuse and teaches him to avoid health care law violations. It will prepare him for his chosen career.
According to Fisher, enrolling in college when you are in the 9th grade is fundamentally a matter of “mindset, and being aware of what you are doing.” He certainly sees his own path clearly and is unique among the teens I know.
Fisher has been inducted into the National Collegiate Honors Society and will graduate May 2023 at the age of 16 with a BS in Organizational Leadership, with dual minors in Political Science and Public Administration.
He will be the youngest student ever to attend VSU, youngest student to graduate and youngest student to attend master’s program at VSU: he will be 16.
