It takes some longer than others to figure out where they're supposed to be. That was certainly the case for Abtin Iranmanesh, who after more than decade away has finally returned to his hometown to earn a bachelor's degree in biology from The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). Iranmanesh's journey began after graduating from Bob Jones High School in 2000, when he headed north to attend Vanderbilt University. &quot;Like many young people, I was excited to become a collegiate athlete, move away from home, and be fully independent,&quot; he says. Once there, he earned both a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's degree in organizational leadership.
