Springs teen is Penn's youngest engineer

At 19 years old, Brittney Exline became the youngest student to ever receive her engineering degree from the University of Pennsylvania. The Palmer High School graduate grabbed headlines when she grabbed her diploma four years ago at the age of 15.

She hopes to eventually return to academic life for her graduate degree, but for now has accepted a job with a software engineering firm in Boston.

We'll catch up with Brittney and her mom tonight at 5:00 on News First 5.
