At 5 feet, 9 inches, Forrest Cunningham Jr. blends in with the rest of the class of 2018 at Bishop Dwenger High School.
You wouldn’t immediately know just by looking at him that the 15-year-old is four years younger than most of his classmates.
That’s because Forrest started his high school career when he was 11 years old. He was homeschooled before passing a high school placement test. On May 25, he became the youngest Bishop Dwenger graduate in recent memory.
Forrest also completed welding classes at Fort Wayne Community School’s Career Academy, where he earned four welding certificates. He has been accepted into Purdue University Fort Wayne, where he plans to double major in civil and mechanical engineering, a five-year program.
In addition to his academic achievements, Forrest also is a taekwondo champion and holds 16 gold medals in the AAU Junior Olympics. Between his studies and his training, he’s a busy young man. Here’s a glimpse into a day in his life on May 9, 2018.
