Elisa Guerrant had her eye on the prize since she got into high school.
Four years later, the 17-year-old Benicia High School senior made her dream come true. Guerrant is the Benicia valedictorian with a 4.408 GPA.
“I’m excited,” she said. “It’s cool.”Guerrant will be continuing her education at Brown University in Rhode Island, with plans of having a concentration in computer science.“I’d like to work with computer security,” said the younger daughter of two.
Her mother, Yolima Guerrant, said though she was very proud of her daughter’s achievement, it didn’t come as a surprise that she was named valedictorian of her class.“She was always focused,” she said.
“She loved to read since she was a child. Always curious, searching things. She’ll reach whatever she puts her mind into it.”
