COVID cases are surging in the islands as thousands of Hawai'i students prepare for graduation. And for one Waipahu graduate, contracting the disease is ruining one of her biggest milestones.

HONOLULU (KITV4) -- Gerryzze Ilan, a valedictorian and honors student at Waipahu High School, worked diligently to get to this moment.

She was slated to be recognized tonight for her many accomplishments over the past four years -- serving on the student council, numerous academic honors and a 4.2 grade point average.
