    Congrats! I am sure you will excel even farther. Stick with the Eagle Scouts too. I know a guy who was an Eagle Scout. Later in life, he graduated from USC as a civil engineer/Ensign then went into the Navy full time. He now has a rank of Captain and title of Commodore. And moved into the US Forestry Service.

    Hi Rocky,How are you overthere? I think your parents are as happy as your Uncle David & Aunt Linda here.....You have done an excellent job working so hard to get what you want. Hopefully you'll get into Yale later. You deserve it! I remember you were so happy when you got the interview from Yale.Good luck!

    This is an awesome kid. He appreciates the good opportunity of learning in this country. Hopefully other students here - who don't like school- will look at what they have done to improve their work so they can be successful like this one.I'm so proud of you, boy!Very good article, Ross! Thank you.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Rocky and attended his graduation ceremony. He is indeed a delightful young man, who embraced the American Way with enthusiasm. He is an inspiration to those in his homeland, as well as new found friends in America, of which I am privledged to be one. Rocky will suceed with his ideals in life as well as his dreams. Thank you for this inspirational piece.

    It is too bad that more American children cannot be like this. If the children of Mexican immigrants would learn a lesson from this young man's experience, their relatives would not be getting kicked out of Arizona. Excellent article, Ross.
