The Youngest Member of U.Va.'s Graduating Class of 2000

May 5, 2000 -- At 17, Katherine Ann Giltinan of Faber, in Nelson County, the daughter of David and Sally Giltinan, will be the youngest person to graduate from the University of Virginia this year. She will receive a B.A. in English, after maintaining a GPA of approximately 3.8.

Giltinan, whose father and grandfather also went to U.Va., entered the University at age 16, already in her third year of college. She began college at 13, attending Piedmont Virginia Community College, where she earned an associate's degree at 15, with a 4.0 average.

She was taught to read early and, suffering from asthma and other illnesses, was taught at home until the eighth grade. She has always loved reading and writing, she says. She took classes in London last summer with U.Va. English professors and plans to work with a publishing company in Charlottesville after graduation.
