Greer can design websites and he now has a degree to prove that. At the age of 15, just a few days shy of his 16th birthday, he earned a Front End Web Development Tech Degree through the West Virginia Coding Club and Treehouse, a nationally accredited certified tech-ed company.

“Most people are at least in their 20s before they get a degree like this,” Greer said. “I really wanted to test myself and shoot to get it before I was 16. I made it just under the wire.”
