10-year-old scholar takes Calif. college by storm

With the end of another school year approaching, college sophomore Moshe Kai Cavalin is cramming for final exams in classes such as advanced mathematics, foreign languages and music.

But Cavalin is only 10 years old. And at 4-foot-7, his shoes don’t quite touch the floor as he puts down a schoolbook and swivels around in his chair to greet a visitor.

College officials couldn’t immediately say whether he is the youngest student in the school’s 63-year history. Among child prodigies, Michael Kearney, now 24, is often cited as the world’s youngest college graduate, having earned a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from the University of South Alabama at age 10.
