As a Latino minority, Marlon knew he had something to prove to himself, his family and the rest of the world. With hard work and determination, he exceeded the level of proficiency and aimed for the impossible. Despite the statistical odds that were against him, he rose above his peers to become Valedictorian of his senior class.
