Bags packed and seated in his parents’ Yukon XL, in 2008, 15-year-old Sawyer Stone watched the Dallas traffic swoosh around him. After a four-hour drive, the family had finally reached their destination. They were not heading for a museum or concert. They were bringing Sawyer to college.
At 14, Sawyer Stone graduated from a small high school in Hot Springs, Ark. At 15, he began school at Southern Methodist University. At 18, he graduated from SMU and headed to graduate school at Louisiana Tech University.
