According to Dionn’s parents, her thirst for knowledge was evident at a young age.

“We realized Dionn was unique at a very early age, before she could walk. Teachers at her daycare would always tell us that Dionn was very smart and that she knew a lot for her age. It was suggested by them that we have her tested when she got into elementary school,” Dionn’s mother, Sharon Megginson revealed.

Megginson and her husband, David, did just that. Dionn was tested and within three weeks of Kindergarten she was promoted to first grade through credit by exam (CBE). From grades 1 through 4 she excelled in all of her studies, receiving The Principal’s Award each year, the highest student recognition at her elementary school. Once Dionn finished fourth grade, she took another exam that allowed her to skip the fifth grade and enter six grade at just 9-years-old.
