*HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (KYW) — Graduating high school is a big accomplishment and one Bucks County boy’s graduation is making history.
Nine-year-old David Balogun received his diploma from Reach Cyber Charter School in Harrisburg after taking classes remotely.
He loves science and computer programming and credits a number of favorite teachers for his success.
While David’s parents have advanced degrees, they say raising a young son with extraordinary intellectual gifts is challenging.
“He’s a 9-year-old with a brain that just has the capacity to understand and comprehend a lot of concepts that’s beyond his years and sometimes beyond my understanding,” Ronya Balogun, David’s mother, said.
