Youngest Student in Morehouse College History Returns Home to Detroit

Whiz Kid Stephen Stafford to galvanize Detroit Youth on June 3, 2011
May 9, 2011 - PRLog -- DETROIT, MI – Stephen Stafford, who began college at age 11 and outscoring students nearly twice his age in mathematics courses at Morehouse College, will speak to members of his generation about  “math and technology”, Friday, June 3, 2011 at the Southfield Public Library.  Stephen became an international media sensation when he became the youngest student ever to enroll at the 150 year-old institution as a full-time regular student at age 13! Joining Stephen will be former NFL Detroit Lion, LaMar Campbell and the event is FREE and open to the public.

Although Stephen’s family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia when Stephen was very young, Stephen clings to his Detroit roots personally and in every media interview.  The double-major is elated to be going back home to visit with family, drive by his childhood residence and do what he claims he loves the most, connecting with his peers during his scheduled appearances.  “I like hearing kids say they want to do better in school after they meet with me”, exclaims the now 15 year old mathematics major who has launched his own tech company.  Stephen has given African-American youth a new image of what can be accomplished in education!

Detroit native Michelle Brown-Stafford, the mother who began Stephen’s homeschooling in Detroit and subsequently directly into college, will also meet with parents to inspire them and provide educational resources.   “When our media relations specialist presented me with the latest news regarding the educational status of half Detroit’s residence, I knew we had to do this!”  The parental involvement expert continued, “Detroit has produced some of the best entertainers and athletes the world has ever experienced and now Detroit can stake its claim on producing the youngest student ever to attend Morehouse College in the 150 years it has been in existence.”  Morehouse College has graduated such prestigious alum as Martin Luther King Jr., Samuel Jackson, Spike Lee and others.

Stephen Stafford has appeared on CNN, Headline News, The Monique Show and the Tyra Banks Show.  His story has been reported in international media outlets and he continues to speak to young people across the country, selling out several venues including giving the keynote address at the NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner in St. Petersburg, Florida.  The computer whiz has also been profiled in newspapers in several countries and is slated to appear in Ebony Magazine this summer.
