Portal High School valedictorian Skarleth Delfin-Uscanga

Skarleth Delfin-Uscanga overcame tremendous obstacles to achieve her graduating class' highest academic honor. First, at age six she immigrated to America with her parents and settled in Portal. Though already reading and writing in her native language, she did not speak English.
