BOSTON (CBS) – Two Boston high school seniors got the surprise of a lifetime Tuesday during an interview with Scholar Athletes. They are now both headed to college for free.

Because Ainsley Pena is a standout student and athlete, Scholar Athletes gave her a full ride to Curry College. Pena thought she was just doing an interview when they told her she had a surprise outside.

First she saw her family all gathered around, and then a drone appeared. “And then I see a loud drone coming in with a Curry College bag on it,” Pena said. “And it was coming towards me and I was just very speechless.”

Inside the bag was a note that she received the full tuition scholarship to Curry.

“I was just very speechless, I didn’t know what to say,” Pena said. “It felt like a dream come true.”

A second scholarship was handed out to Janelys Delvalle who will attend Regis College. Delvalle is a standout varsity basketball player who wants to become a surgeon.
