A Degree at 17

When Jessica Brooke received her diploma in May 2015,    she set a university record as Weber State University’s youngest graduate.

Brooke arrived at the university at age 14, having completed her associate’s degree in Arizona. Her family moved to Ogden so she could receive a great education in a nurturing environment. She majored in math, minored in chemistry, sang with the choir and learned to drive in the parking lot of the Dee Events Center.

Brooke is currently pursuing her master’s degree in public health. Her ultimate goal is to graduate from medical school and become a doctor.
