Vallejo High School senior Aevril Figueroa envisions a job and a future for herself in architecture. For now, she’s building up quite a resume, including the latest addition: Class Valedictorian.
Figueroa is the top student in the Class of 2021, just four years after moving to Vallejo from Daly City and the Philippines before that.
“I’m in disbelief since I learned I was valedictorian,” Figueroa said. “I didn’t think I would win it and I almost didn’t believe it until one of my friends who is a salutatorian told me it was true. But I’m still kind of in disbelief right now.”
