DeKalb County, GA – Sydney Wilson will be kicking off her college career this fall at Spelman College. She is the youngest female ever to be accepted to the historically black college.
Wilson has always been an exceptional student and amazed her parents since she was in the second grade. Before entering her teens she was studying advanced biology. Aware of her intelligence and accelerated learning pace, they arranged for her to begin taking high school courses at 10 years old.
Wilson, who was homeschooled, attended a private school founded by her father called Wilson Academy. In addition to her academics she was involved in several extracurricular activities, serving as the head of the Rotary Club and robotics team and playing soccer and running track.
Wilson—who is staying true to her love for STEM and plans on majoring in biology—is beyond excited to continue her academic journey at the Atlanta-based historic institution.
