It’s graduation season, meaning students of all ages are getting ready to don cap and gown. We’re especially excited to hear about one graduate, Cortlan Wickliff, who will become the Harvard Law School’s youngest black graduate in history at age 22, reports Clutch Magazine.

Graduation for Wickliff is May 30 and it will be the second time Wickliff makes history. He graduated with a B.S. in engineering from Rice University when he was just 19 years old, making him the youngest black engineer in the country. After finishing at Harvard Law, he’ll be heading to Texas A & M University to complete a PhD in engineering. His ultimate goal is to develop devices that will keep people healthy.
