Darrell Landon Kelly had little time to bask in the honor of his graduation from the University of Cincinnati College of Law on Saturday.
Kelly and his family had to race from the law school ceremony at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington to the Cintas Center in Evanston so Kelly could get his Master of Business Administration from Xavier University’s Williams College of Business.
Kelly got two advanced degrees from two universities on one day. And he’s only 24 years old.
“Some kids do great. Some kids do wonderful. But when you go past great and get your master’s and turn into a lawyer, you do like the Bible says: exceedingly and abundantly,” said Richard Layson, who has known Kelly for most of the young man’s life. “That’s where he went — exceedingly more than we ever asked for.”
