With a Head Start at Age 9, Summer Scholar Georgette Burrell Taking the Fast Track to Rutgers
Georgette Burrell took her first college biochemistry course at age 9. Now 13, the Asbury Park youth is already eyeing her dream school: Rutgers University, where she wants to study oceanography with a minor in journalism.
When she hits campus for her summer courses, Georgette often arrives with an entourage: her mother, Michele Burrell, and her grandmother, Eunice Burrell.
“We usually come as a trio, and it’s funny because it’s three generations,” said Michele Burrell.“I was not going to just leave my 9-year-old!”
