East High Valedictorian Awarded Surprise Scholarship

The valedictorian of East High School was awarded a surprise scholarship Monday night.

Crystal Colon is the first Latina valedictorian in East High's 110-year history. She was given a $1,000 scholarship from AT&T.
Colon moved to Rochester from New Jersey two years ago. She said her transition here was hard, but persistence paid off.

"Once I came to Rochester, I started receiving all these nominations. My counselor, she started nominating me for all these different awards and these different programs that the school was offering. It was just completely different. I was finally being recognized for my hard work," Colon said.

Colon will be going to the University of Rochester this fall to major in economics. She hopes to become a lawyer some day.
