NORTHFIELD, MN (KARE/NBC) - David Greer took Post-Secondary Enrollment Options to a whole new level by graduating with a high school diploma and statistics degree from the University of Minnesota-Morris.
"It was a fun challenge," David Greer said.
The home-schooler used the educational options to earn his associate degree in 11th grade.
Then this year, at 17 years old, he enrolled full-time at the University of Minnesota Morris.
"By the time he was in kindergarten, he was reading chapter books," Stacey Greer, his mom said.
While the brains where there, his parents admit applying it took time.
"He was clearly bright but not extremely motivated. I think he just realized one day that, 'Hey, I think I can get this done really fast,' and he became totally motivated and just took off and ran with it. And we just got out of the way," Bryan Greer, David Greer's dad, said.
