Transcript for Steve Harvey offers to pay college tuition for 12-year-old prodigy
Moving on now, a child prodigy is getting a special reward for his hard work. TV host Steve Harvey stepping in to foot the bill for the tuition at the 12-year-old's dream college. ABC's elwyn Lopez joins us from Georgia tech with the details. Good morning, elwyn. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. Georgia tech is looking at a potential new student but unlike most of its recruits this one might be on and off campus before he's able to get his driver's license. My name is Caleb Anderson and I am a 12-year-old and I am in college. Reporter: This morning, TV host Steve Harvey and his foundation are offering to foot the bill for one gifted preteen. Harvey giving the opportunity of a lifetime to Caleb Anderson. They offered to not only pay the remaining semester at chatahoocheeech but also at Georgia tech to cover all fees, books, everything, so we are extremely grateful for that that we do not have to pay that out of pocket. Reporter: He's just 12 and already a college sophomore. Ever since I was born I've had a different life than other kids and it was always different for me. Reporter: Before he took his first step. He was reading the constitution of the United States. A 6-month-old he was already reading. By 9-month-old he was already signing and reading and then by 11 months old he was reading words he's never seen before. Reporter: By the age of 10, as most kids his age were preparing for middle school, he was ready for college. It wasn't really challenging for me. It was slow. It was boring. I went to college. I was able to challenge myself. Reporter: At 11, he enrolled as a freshman at chatahoochee technical college in Marietta, Georgia. Now Caleb wants to continue his aerospace engineering studies at another college, Georgia tech and with Harvey's help he'll be able to do just that. So it's just thank you, thank you, uncle Harvey. That's what we call him now, uncle Harvey. Reporter: Here at Georgia tech, they say they were happy to meet with Caleb and his family and they're always excited when young bright minds want to join them, Dan. We were saying Caleb for president. That kid is amazing. Elwyn, thank you very much.
