A Southern California college graduate achieved something exceptional in what has been a spring unlike any other for students.

At just 13, Jack Rico, of La Mirada, graduated from Fullerton College with four associate’s degrees. He is the college’s youngest ever graduate. 

“I still can’t really believe that I’ve achieved something like this,” Jack said. “I didn’t know that I could really do that.”

His degrees are in social sciences, social behavior and self development, arts and human expression and history. He earned the degrees in just two years at the college.

Jack plans to continue his education at the University of Nevada. 

Like graduates throughout the nation, Jack wasn’t able to experience a school ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic. A drive-by celebration is planned for Wednesday in his neighborhood.

Established in 1913, Fullerton College is the oldest community college in continuous operation in California.
