Lake Ridge High School Senior Graduates at 15 Years Old
onyea Grayson is just like any other high school
student. She stays active in school, keeps up with
her grades, and likes to hang out with her friends. She’s
excited to cross the stage this June on graduation day,
but she won’t be able to drive herself to the event.
In fact, she can’t drive anywhere at all by herself
because she’s only 15 years old.
“My friends forget that I’m this young,” said Grayson.
“I started high school when I was 12, but I’m lucky
that I had my older brother there with me so that he can
sort of protect me.”
As a child, Grayson skipped two grade levels. She’s used
to being the youngest in her class and said that it pushed
her to be a stronger person and work even harder.
“It helped build my character because early on, it was
hard for the kids to accept me since I was younger,” the
15-year-old recalled. “I pushed myself to prove to my
Pre-K to Grade 12
teachers and classmates that
I did belong in that class.”
Grayson is involved in
many organizations at
Lake Ridge High School.
She was on the Academic
cheerleading squad, and
a member of the National
Senior Donyea Grayson said she’s
excited about the opportunities
She’s heading off to the
that lie ahead of her.
University of California,
Los Angeles (UCLA) in the fall with hopes of majoring
in psychology and eventually going to law school.
“I essentially gave up two years of childhood for two
years of adulthood,” said Grayson, who expressed
excitement for her future. “I would do it all again
because it shaped me to be who I am today.”
Better grades start at
School doesn’t always have to be a struggle. In fact, some kids love
it—and not just because of friends or good grades. They love it
because they’re willing to try, and because they feel
confident in their ability to learn. All kids can love school.
It just takes GradePower to show them how.
