Irving clock kid named to Time's Most Influential Teens of 2015 list

Time has named the former Irving student arrested for bringing a clock to school one of its ‘30 Most Influential Teens of 2015.’

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was arrested by Irving police in September after he brought a homemade digital clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb by Irving MacArthur High School faculty. The subsequent fallout made international headlines.

Time named Mohamed to its influential teens list, released on Tuesday, and said Mohamed “kicked off a national debate over racial profiling.”

Mohamed’s family announced last week they plan to leave Irving soon and move to the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar, where a foundation has offered to pay for Mohamed’s schooling.

Mohamed toured the U.S. and the world after his arrest. His most recent stops were last week in Washington D.C., including a visit to the White House where he met President Obama.
